Two-day Ang Lee retrospective in New Delhi from 23 July

MUMBAI: The Taipei Economic and Cultural Centre, New Delhi, in association with the Directorate of Film Festivals, will be hosting a Retrospective Film Festival of director Ang Lee from 23 to 25 July at Siri Fort Auditorium, New Delhi. Thereafter, the movies will be showcased in Pune and Kolkata.

The five films that will be screened on the occasion are Fine Line, Pushing Hands, The Wedding Banquet, Eat Drink Man Woman and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. This festival traces Ang Lee‘s journey starting from his first college.

Out of the five films that will be showcased, four have been produced by international producer Hus Li-Kong who will also be the chief guest at the inauguration ceremony in Delhi.

Ang Lee attributes his success to him and feels that without Hsu he would not have been where he is today. Lee, who would not be attending, will be sending his message on a DVD that will be screened for viewers at the inauguration.

Ang Lee is a symbol of Taiwan‘s creativity. He is one of the seven directors to win the Oscar, the Golden Globe, Director‘s Guild and BAFTA for the same movie, Brokeback Mountain, that released in 2005.

His films have been well received by audiences not only in Taiwan but all over the world, because of the striking diversity, as well as Lee‘s recurring themes of alienation, marginalisation, and repression.

Taiwani Ambassador Wenchyi Ong said, "India is a land of film lovers and Taiwan‘s film industry is already well-known in the international arena for having a large number of talented and creative individuals. Our films, I Can‘t Live Without You and Wall, won the Golden Peacock Award at IFFI in 2007 and 2009 and I do hope that through Ang Lee‘s retrospective, Indians will be able to connect to one of Taiwan‘s most loved directors and his heart warming films."
