“If you feel there’s a wind coming, you get ready for it. And the wind comes to you… A film already has its ending before shooting. All these endings are waiting for you everywhere. Accidents may happen and change the endings, but they’re all there. Maybe you weren’t looking.” Mark Lee Pin Bing
Let The Wind Carry Me (2009) – A charming and meditative portrait of renowned Taiwanese cinematographer Mark Lee Pin Bing. Directed by Kwan Pun-leung and Chiang Hsiu-chiung, the feature documentary dissects Lee’s signature aesthetic and provides a behind-the-scenes peep into the intimate (and sometimes painful) relationship a Director of Photography shares with a Director in the crafting of a film, and in Lee’s case, with some of the most celebrated luminaries in Asian cinema including Hou Hsiao Hsien, Wong Kar Wai, and Tran Anh Hung.
