Zhang Yimou retrospective at the Filmoteca


For the first time, Madrid's Ciné Doré filmoteca will host a retrospective dedicated to Chinese film director Zhang Yimou
His first movie, Red Sorghum, won the Golden Bear at the 1998 Berlin Festival and vaulted Zhang among the internationally acclaimed movie directors. 
Many movies will follow, all of them with his wife, stunning Gong Li, as a main character: Ju Dou in 1989, Wives and Concubines in 1991 (Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival), The Story of Qiu Ju (Golden Lion ) followed by To Live (Grand Prix du Jury at the 94 Cannes Festival) and Shanghai Triad in 1995. His movies all have one thing in common: an extremely refined framed composition.

A wonderful occasion to view (or view again) his masterpieces.
