A film mirrors the director as he/she is. Therefore, even if you don’t personally know the director, a film can tell you who a friend is. I look forward to seeing films that are rich in unique personal experiences. Without experiences, the world of cinema wouldn’t have come this far. At the same time, experiences are something which the audience should be able to empathize with. I hope to see such films at this festival.
Young directors are free from the pressures of filmmaking. I was just over 30 years old when I shot, Yellow Earth.After I studied film direction at the Beijing Film Academy, I had no experience in filmmaking and very little concept of what film direction was about. It was a bold move I took making that film. After shooting several films, you begin to be judged on the outcome of the film which becomes daunting. Yet, young directors need none of that—I say they be bold and challenging, and to maintain and express their purity in their films.” - Chen Kaige
