Tony Ayres (born 16 July 1961) is a Chinese-born Australian
screenwriter and director. He''s most notable for his award-winning
films Walking on Water and The Home Song Stories.Ayres was born in
Macau, China. His mother was a nightclub singer who committed
suicide in 1972, when Ayres was 11 years old. Before her death, his
mother married an Australian sailor and migrated with her family to
Perth, Western Australia in 1964. Ayres'' stepfather died of a
heart attack three years after the death of his wife, and two days
before he was due to remarry. Ayres and his older sister briefly
lived with their stepfather''s former fiancee, before being placed
in the care of Ayres'' history teacher. They then moved to
Canberra, Australian Capital Territory with their guardian, whom
Ayres'' sister later married. Ayres'' 2007 film The Home Song
Stories is loosely based on this early period of his life.
