Along with director Huang Jianxin, Liu Haoran and many other big names in the Chinese film industry, Ziyi attended a press conference at the 16th Beijing Film Festival. They shared some thoughts on the future of Chinese filmmaking.
Some quotes of Ziyi during the conference:
I believe teamwork is an indispensable part of producing high-quality films. We need directors, actors, screenwriters and other crew members to all do their best. And for our actresses, I think one of the most important things is to have enough understanding of the characters and have a strong faith in themselves and their abilities.
Also we talk about what is a ‘Superior’ film, but I don’t think anyone on stage or behind the scenes should think about it first. We should first take out our most essential sincere dedication to our career, which I think may be more important than ‘Superior.
