In Conversation With...Christopher Doyle on Chungking Express

Wong Kar-wai’s visually dazzling fusion of offbeat romantic comedy and coolly postmodern reverie was a signature film of the millennium, transforming Hong Kong into a woozy array of sublime neons and stuttering slow motion. Award-winning cinematographer Christopher Doyle—whose long and legendary collaboration with Wong Kar-wai has been complemented by films for such major directors as Stanley Kwan, Chen Kaige, Zhang Yimou, Edward Yang, Gus Van Sant, Jim Jarmusch and many others—joins us as we launch our exclusive run of Chungking Express to discuss his work on this milestone of modern cinema and his extraordinary career as one of the world’s pre-eminent cinematographers. In Conversation with…Christopher Doyle launches Chungking Express’s run as a New Release.

Chungking Express opens Thursday, April 21 at TIFF Bell Lightbox.
