Great Wall My Love: Los Angeles Screening

April 11, 2012 § 1 Comment

Great Wall, My Love (Chasing Love)

Great Wall My Love will be shown in this year’s Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, on 5/16/12 at 7 PM, at the CGV Cinemas 2.  The director, Emily Liu, will be present.

I co-originated and co-wrote this project, worked on it for eight years, and was originally a co-producer. Though I don’t want to take away from Emily’s accomplishment–Emily got it produced against all odds, in the midst of a horrible recession–I will see the film with mixed feelings, as its political content (which used to balance the romantic comedy and road trip elements) was removed.  Just by its nature (Chinese/Taiwanese co-production) the production was still somewhat political, and that must suffice, especially as its main audience is in China.

The film, starring Cherrie Ying and Tong Dawei, takes place in nine glorious locations along the Great Wall of China.  Li-Kong Hsu (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; Eat Drink Man Woman) executive-produced.
