The 12 selected films include "Dream of the Red Chamber" (1962), "Four Sisters" (1966), "Master Cute and Tai Fan Shu" (1966), "First Love Forever" (1967), "Three Flowers of the Factory" (1967), "Teddy Girls" (1969), "Lovely Husbands" (1969), "The House of 72 Tenants" (1973), "It's a Mad Mad Mad World" (1987), "Double Fattiness" (1988), "Mother Vs Mother" (1988) and "In-laws, Out-laws" (2004).

The films will be screened at the Film Archive, the Science Museum and the Space Museum, the spokesman said, adding that an exhibition of her stills and photographs will be staged at the Film Archive.
