A conversation hosted by Yves Montmayeur (Historian and director).
Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi's twenty-year career started with her first appearance on screen in Zhang Yimou's film The Road Home before arriving at Cannes the following year with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon by Ang Lee. Since then, she has often returned to the Croisette, as a member of the Jury (Competition or Un Certain Regard) or for major films such as 2046 by Wong Kar-wai or Zhang Yimou's House of Flying Daggers. She has been nominated for Golden Globes and BAFTA awards for her performance in Rob Marshall's Memoirs of a Geisha and has worked again with Wong Kar-wai in 2013 with The Grandmasterfor which she earned twelve awards. She will soon be starring in Godzilla II King of Monsters.
Zhang Ziyi will introduce Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon at the Cinéma de la Plage on Tuesday, May 21 at 9:30PM.
