Li Han-hsiang, Storyteller (English edition) Book Cover

Li Han-hsiang, Storyteller

Sometimes enfant terrible, sometimes a hack of the Chinese speaking cinema, director Li Han-hsiang started and consolidated his filmmaking career in Hong Kong, self-exiled to Taiwan in the prime of his career in the mid-60s, returned to the ex-colony in the 70s, then steered majestically into the mainland with the liberalising of Chinese economy in the 80s. Li Han-hsiang, Storyteller comprises two sections: essays re-evaluating his rich, versatile and often controversial career, and revealing interviews of both Li himself and his collaborators. Published in 2007 in separate Chinese and English editions. Priced at HK$128 each. (Edited by Wong Ain-ling)
