Zhang Yimou

Zhang Yimou (; born 2 April 1950) is a Chinese film director, producer, writer, actor and former cinematographer. He is a part of the Fifth Generation of Chinese filmmakers, Honorary Doctorate of Boston University and Yale University, Distinguished Professor of Beijing Film Academy. He made his directorial debut in 1988 with ''Red Sorghum''.

Zhang has won numerous awards and recognitions, with three Academy Awards nominations for Best Foreign Language Film for ''Ju Dou'' in 1990, ''Raise the Red Lantern'' in 1991, and ''Hero'' in 2003; a Silver Lion, two Golden Lion prizes and the Glory to the Filmmaker Award at the Venice Film Festival; Grand Jury Prize, Prize of the Ecumenical Jury and Technical Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival; the Golden Bear, the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize and the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury at the Berlin International Film Festival. In 1993, he was a member of the jury at the 43rd Berlin International Film Festival. Zhang directed the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games as well as the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games, which received considerable international acclaim.

One of Zhang's recurrent themes is the resilience of Chinese people in the face of hardship and adversity, a theme which has been explored in such films as ''To Live'' (1994) and ''Not One Less'' (1999). His films are particularly noted for their rich use of colour, as can be seen in some of his early films, like ''Raise the Red Lantern'', and in his wuxia films like ''Hero'' and ''House of Flying Daggers''. His highest budgeted film to date is the 2016 monster film ''The Great Wall'', set in Imperial China and starring Matt Damon. Provided by Wikipedia
