Michelle Yeoh to Be Feted at Macau Festival

Malaysian star Michelle Yeoh is to be the subject of the In Focus section at next month’s International Film Festival & Awards Macao. The festival (Dec. 8-14) has also completed its lineup.

Yeoh, whose credits stretch from “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” to “Tomorrow Never Dies” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” will appear in an in-conversation session Dec. 14. The festival will also screen her 2010 effort “Reign of Assassins,” directed by Su Chao-pin.

The festival added five films across its different sections and unveiled details of the Crossfire section, in which directors pick genre films that influenced them.

The festival added Craig Gillespie’s “I, Tonya,” Korean blockbuster “The Outlaws,” French smash hit “C’est La Vie!” (aka “Le Sens De La Fete”) from Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano; and Macau film maker Lorence Chan’s “Passing Rain.” IFFAM jury president Laurent Cantet will introduce a special presentation of his latest film, “The Workshop” (“L’Atelier”), which screened in Un Certain Regard at Cannes this year.

For Crossfire, “2001: A Space Odyssey” (1968, Stanley Kubrick) was selected by Shekhar Kapur; “Kind Hearts and Coronets” (1949, Robert Hamer) was selected by Pen-Ek Ratanaruang; “Mad Detective” (2007, Johnnie To & Wai Ka-fai) was selected by Guillermo Del Toro; “One Nite in Mongkok” (2004, Derek Yee) was selected by Ivan Sen; “Rashomon” (1950, Akira Kurosawa) was selected by Martin Koolhoven; and “The Silence of the Lambs” (1991, Jonathan Demme) was selected by Im Sang-soo. Aside from Del Toro, all the directors will be in Macau to present their chosen titles.
