|Chen is the first Chinese director of his generation to have lived abroad for an exteneded period, to have learned English and begun to assimilate into the international artistic community."--Orville Schell (THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 27, 1991)|
|"My experiences abroad make me want to experiment more. I always wanted to teach people through film, to give them a big message. But now what I feel I want to do is more to dream through film, hoping that maybe the film itself will be able to tell more than I can." --Chen Kaige (THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 27, 1991)|
|"I don't see the difference between life and art," says Chinese director Chen Kaige. "I believe everyone is playing one role or another."
Chen, 41, knows about role playing. When he was 14, and away at a boy's school for high-ranking Chinese officials, became a member of the Red Guard which was promoting radical change within China in the 1960s. During this turbulent time, Chen publicly denounced his father, a director and former member of the Nationalist Party. He was chosen to be identified as a secret agent. Chen says, "Of course, I knew he wasn't a spy but I still did it." In this period, says Chen, "people were encouraged to hate each other." --Lisa Katzman, "Farewell's Bullhorn in a China shop" (DAILY NEWS, October 19, 1993)
