Wong Kar-wai is one of the most influential film directors of his generation. His impressionistic, evocative movies capture the fleeting nature of time and love and the chaotic swirl of contemporary life. With his eagerly awaited new movie, The Grandmaster, he reinvents the martial arts genre while reuniting Tony Leung and Zhang Ziyi, the stars of his science-fiction epic 2046. The New York premiere of The Grandmaster, with Wong Kar-wai in person, is the centerpiece of this comprehensive retrospective, including all ten of the director’s feature films. These millennial-defining works are among the most celebrated and critically significant films of the Hong Kong Second Wave. The series will be accompanied with an online symposium on Reverse Shot.
