It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the Jiang Wen Retrospective, a series of wonderful films featuring acclaimed Chinese actor, director and screenwriter Jiang Wen. The films will be showing at the Filmhouse in Edinburgh from March 11 to April 1, 2019. All the Chinese films have English subtitles.
A team of Chinese cinema experts – professors of the University of Edinburgh and a Chinese film programmer – have carefully selected the films for your enjoyment. You will have a chance to glean from their expertise as they will be giving special introductions to some of the films. See Meet the Presenters.
Some of you may have seen Jiang Wen in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) and you will be happy to hear that Rogue One will be the closing show on April 1. The Retrospective provides a rare opportunity to see his other brilliant works here in Edinburgh. To whet your appetite, we provide:
- An overview of Jiang Wen, his life and his films: Who is Jiang Wen?
- Trailers and clips of his films: The Films
- A Master Class with Jiang Wen presented at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2018: More about Jiang Wen
The Jiang Wen Retrospective is supported by the Confucius Institute for Scotland in the University of Edinburgh and brought to you with our partners the Filmhouse, China Film Archive, Emperor Motion Pictures and Orange Sky Golden Harvest Entertainment Group.
