LOS ANGELES, CA – Acclaimed director Wong Kar Wai returns to the Academy for an in-depth examination of his cinematic style and career with “Wong Kar Wai: In Person” on Thursday, May 19, at 7:30 p.m. at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. Hosted by writer-director Matthew Weiner, the evening of film clips and conversation will include insights from Wong biographer John Powers as well as personal reflections from the filmmaker himself in a rare Los Angeles appearance.
Born in Shanghai but raised in Hong Kong, Wong began his career as a screenwriter for both television and film before making his directorial debut with the 1988 gangster movie “As Tears Go By.” Over the next quarter-century, he wrote and directed such acclaimed features as “Days of Being Wild,” “Chungking Express,” “Happy Together,” “In the Mood for Love” and “2046.” Wong previously visited the Academy with an advance screening of his 2013 martial arts epic “The Grandmaster.”
