Ang Lee's Never Ending Dream: 心裡永遠有一個關於電影的夢
Harvard grad student Irene Shih has kindly translated an essay that Oscar winner Ang Lee wrote back in 2006, describing his struggles to make it as a young parent and aspiring filmmaker from Taiwan. Ms. Shih's February 26th, 2013 blogpost contains the original Chinese version - which should make it of special interest to my students and friends in Taiwan who share Ang Lee's filmmaking dreams and like Ang Lee (when he was an outsider, 25 years ago) are struggling. Those of you reading this blog who don't speak English as your first language are (like Ang Lee) an inspiration to me. Thanks.
