On April 21st, Ziyi joined the cast and crew of The Great War to promote the film at the opening ceremony of the 13th Beijing International Film festival. Once again, she was effortlessly stunning. A poster of Ziyi’s character Tang Sheng was also released, along with a new theatrical trailer, without any trace of Ziyi at all.
The next day, Ziyi attended the press conference of this year’s Aranya Theater Festival, of which she is one the the artistic directors.
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.
