Lou Ye

Lou Ye attended the Beijing Academy during the time of student protests and the Tiananmen Square Massacre. At the Academy, the influence of Soviet films was waning and Lou Ye and his contemporaries, known as China's 6th Generation Filmmakers, were more directly influenced by European and American cinema. 'Suzhou River' was his first independently produced feature.
