Firebird award for Life after Life in Hong Kong

ZHI FAN YE MAO (LIFE AFTER LIFE) by Zhang Hanyi has won the Firebird Award of the 40th Hong Kong International Film Festival. The jury members Sylvia Chang, Denis Coté, Dai Jinhua and Ian Haydn Smith called it "a film that is bold in its cinematographic technique, uncompromising in its vision of society and employing an impressive formal aesthetic." Zhang Hanyi's debut feature had received its world premiere as part of this year's Forum programme.
