With Life of Pi, film director Ang Lee won the Academy Award for Best Director in 2013. Originally from Taiwan, Lee is the first person of Asian descent to win an Oscar for Best Director -- and he has done it twice (first time with Brokeback Mountain). Representing Taiwan, his Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon also won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2001.
To celebrate Ang Lee's artistic achievement, the "Spotlight Taiwan in Austin" project invites Austinites to watch Life of Pi in 3D at Galaxy Highland 10 Theatre on April 12 (Saturday).
