CineAsia hands out honors

7 December 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

BEIJING -- CineAsia on Thursday honored mainland Chinese director Feng Xiaogang and American producer Barbara Robinson of Columbia Pictures Film Production Asia, for tireless promotion of their respective movie traditions.

Feng, director of The Banquet, Hong Kong's pick this year for Oscar consideration, gave the first CineAsia visionary award to Robinson for her production of some of the best internationally respected Chinese films of the last two decades, including four-time Oscar winner Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (2000). The presentation took place Thursday, the last day of the 14th edition of the regional industry trade show.

A retrospective reel screened in her honor included Crouching Tiger director Ang Lee blowing Robinson kisses and director Zhang Yimou, with whom she worked on his seminal Raise the Red Lantern, saying, "Barbara, you played a fundamental role in popularizing Chinese cinema worldwide. Thank you."

In accepting the award, Robinson, who first arrived in China in 1984, acted as her own interpreter, speaking first in Mandarin, "Because this award honors my work in China," a country that she said had changed the direction of her life. »

11 September 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

BEIJING -- Jia Zhangke, winner of the Golden Lion at Venice for Still Life, told local media Monday that his next movie would focus on the end of the Cultural Revolution. Loosely translated as The Time of Tattoos, and based on a novel of the same name by Su Tong (Raise the Red Lantern), Jia said the film will be set in 1975 in Suzhou, near Shanghai, at the end of the decade of social and economic upheaval set in motion by Mao Zedong, founder of the People's Republic. "I don't want to tell macro stories, I want to focus on the small alleys of daily life that show the pain people suffered due to (that period's) shortages, and how they were engulfed by the times," Jia told The First, a supplement to The Beijing Daily. »
