Personal Quote:

Many Chinese directors practice self-censorship because of the tight controls. But I think this is fatal. Directors must be free. So I say to everyone when we are working, 'Let's forget censorship.' That's why there are always so many troubles after the film [Summer Palace] is complete. But while I am shooting, I am very happy. See more »

Trivia:

Banned by the Chinese government from making movies for two years in 2000 for making Suzhou River without an approval from the authority. See more »
