Jiang Wen returns to New York with his movies

Jiang Wen

Beijinger in New York, in which Jiang Wen played the role of Wang Qiming, is considered one of Jiang’s first TV productions. In recent years, a number of his movies have hit the screen in North America.

In 2008, Jiang was invited by Columbia University Asia-Pacific Development Society (CUASIA) to give a lecture and exchange ideas with students of the university. When talking about shooting in New York, he said crew members there were more professional than in China. “Crew members always happen to be newcomers because experienced members get promoted after several years of work. However, a senior member responsible for pushing the cart is gets a lot of respect and is given greater responsibility,” he said.

In 2011, Jiang, along with his second wife Zhou Yun, went to New York again to attend the Annual Tribeca Film Festival. His movie Let the Bullets Fly was one of the two Chinese movies selected for screening at the film festival.

When asked whether he would shoot another TV drama like Beijinger in New York, Jiang said, “You give me a new script and I’ll start work on it very soon.” Jiang also saw some changes in the city, “New York is much cleaner now than it was before and the city has everything you need.”
