His films are known for incorporating strong female leads and exploring the dark side of life in small Chinese rural communities. Zhang’s film To Live was a BAFTA and Cannes Film Festival winner. His latest film, the action-adventure fantasy The Great Wall, starring Matt Damon, is set to release this month.
