Chen Kaige's Interview
Director Chen Kaige, 陳凱歌, had an interview with WBUR. He talked about his past and his views about making movies. I find the most touching part is his review of the cultural revolution in China. He described how he treated his father which is considered harsh and non-human nowadays. He said that he chose to revealed his past was very important to him. Most people blame the turmoil on only Mao Tse Tung but the revolution could not be successful without other people. It is a real courage to admit one's mistake and it is not easy for most people.
