Hong Kong Filmmaker Tsui Hark
Thursday, September 01, 2011
Hong Kong filmmaker Tsui Hark talks about his career and his mega-hit films “Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame,” “Peking Opera Blues,” and “Green Snake.” He was presented with the 2011 Star Asia Lifetime Achievement Award at the New York Asian Film Festival in July. Tsui Hark is viewed as a major figure in the Golden Age of Hong Kong cinema, and was part of the "New Wave" of young, iconoclastic directors that emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s. “Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame” opens in New York Friday at Angelika and the Regal E-Walk 13.
