Hong Kong Director Ann Hui’s ‘The Golden Era’ To Close Venice Film Festival

Hui will also head the jury of Venice's Horizons section dedicated to cutting-edge cinema

ROME – Prominent and prolific Hong Kong helmer Ann Hui’s “The Golden Era” has been selected as the closer at the Venice Film Festival where Hui will head the jury of the fest’s Horizons section, dedicated to innovation and originality in global filmmaking.

Hui (pictured) a veteran who has directed some 30 features spanning different genres, is perhaps the most influential female director on the Hong Kong scene.

“The Golden Era,” a biopic of radical and controversial Chinese female writer Xiao Hong, stars Chinese actress Tang Wei (“Lust, Caution”) in the title role.

Hui won great acclaim at Venice in 2011 with her “A Simple Life” which scooped the main competition’s actress prize for Deanie Ip who played a sixty-year old woman who served in the household of a young producer, whom she attends to as if he were her own son.

 

The 71st edition of Venice will run August 27-September 6.
