Taiwan Film Festival Hosts Controversial Director

Posted: Nov. 27th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse
Director Lou Ye

Lou Ye produces works not always appreciated by the CCP, but in a potentially controversial move given the political climate of the region, Taipei will host his film “Mystery” as part of Taiwan's Golden Horse Film Festival, an event recognized as the “Chinese-language Oscars.” The honors ceremony is set to be held November 24th.

A dark melodrama by an oft-censored Chinese director heads entries in the best film category at Taiwan's Golden Horse Film festival, catapulting mainland cinema to center stage at the event considered the Chinese-language Oscars.

Lou Ye's "Mystery" tells the story of a mild-mannered woman who mounts a radical revenge after uncovering her husband's infidelity.

Aside from best picture award, Lou is also up for best director and Hao Lei, "Mystery'"s female protagonist, is a candidate for best actress.
