Bonus Episode 8: An Interview With Tsui Hark at NYAFF 2011

This episode is a super special one!  VCinema friend and NYAFF coverage partner Dr. Stan Glick of Asian Cinefest was able to sit down for a short interview with Tsui Hark…that’s right TSUI FREAKIN’ HARK, director of the Once Upon a Time in China series (1991-1996), Peking Opera Blues (1986), Dragon Inn (1992), The Blade (1995), Zu Warriors (2001), and his most recent, Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame (2010) as well as countless other Hong Kong classics.  Mr. Tsui attended the NYAFF for a mini-retrospective and also to receive the second annual Star Asia Lifetime Achievement Award and in this interview, he talks about his feelings about receiving the award, his latest film, The Flying Swords of Dragon Gate (2011), filming in 3D space, and more.
