Art-house auteur Jia Zhangke comes to the festival this year for a series of screenings and a Q&A. Jia Zhangke's A Touch of Sin feature film is showing - an oblique homage to the legendary wuxia kung fu film A Touch of Zen directed by King Hu. See trailer below.
I am pleased to announce that I will be joined by Taiwanese director Chen Yin Yen on this Saturday's Lucky Cat radio show. Chen's film The Way We Are is a documentary which focuses on the relationship of two visually impaired people, a woman named Ningyu and a nearly-blind man called Shufeng.
