Tisch School of the Arts and LeTV invite you to a conversation with Oscar-winning director Ang Lee and acclaimed Chinese director Zhang Yimou at the Fredrick P. Rose Auditorium at Cooper Union on March 27 at 8:00 pm.
Director Ang Lee’s insight into the human conditions has allowed his films to transcend cultural and linguistic barriers to speak to audiences all over the world. At the same time, one of the most recurrent themes of Zhang Yimou’s films is the exploration of Chinese culture and the resilience of Chinese people in the face of hardship and adversity. In this event, Mr. Lee and Mr. Zhang will discuss their work as filmmakers, share their experiences in the industry, and engage in a conversation about the Chinese-language Cinema and the power of culture in film production. The first director of Chinese descent to receive an Academy Award nomination, Professor Christine Choy from Tisch School of the Arts (New York University) will moderate the conversation. The conversation will be followed by a Q&A with the general audience.
