ASSC to Honor Feng Xiaogang for Lifetime Achievement Award
Feng Xiaogang, one of China’s most popular, successful and acclaimed filmmakers, will receive a lifetime achievement award. A writer, director and actor, Feng is often called China’s Steven Spielberg. His repertoire ranges from comedy to action and drama. Two of his films – Aftershock and Back to 1942 – were submitted by China as entries for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards. His 2016 film, I Am Not Madame Bovary, a satirical look at Chinese bureaucracy through the tale of a peasant woman seeking justice against her philandering husband, won multiple awards. Feng’s soon-to-be-released film, Youth, chronicles a People’s Liberation Army dance troupe from the Culture Revolution to the 1990s.
