Part of BAMcinématek

The wild man of contemporary Chinese cinema, actor-director Jiang Wen is that rarest of talents: both a magnetic screen presence and a risk-taking auteur, whose films confront the last 100 years of Chinese history with subversive humor and a surplus of style. While he’s moved between art house prizewinners and blockbuster spectacles, what unites all his films are an offbeat sensibility, freewheeling visual style, and ability to smuggle ingeniously veiled political critiques past state censors.
