Jia Zhangke

Language is so specific to art, all the way to the past in China. Previously, people were not allowed to include various regional dialects in their films, but in every film that I've made, I've maintained the regional dialects of the characters because I wanted to make films that were locally specific.More Jia Zhangke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I think, actually, in China, the gulf that exists between the pre- and post-internet generations is more vast.More Jia Zhangke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Even though we can see each other more on the internet, maybe our hearts becomes more distant.More Jia Zhangke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
