Biography: Zhang Yimou is a Chinese film director, producer, writer and actor, and former cinematographer. He is counted amongst the Fifth Generation of Chinese filmmakers, having made his directorial debut in 1987 with Red Sorghum. Zhang has won numerous awards and recognitions, with Best Foreign Film nominations for Ju Dou in 1990 and Raise the Red Lantern in 1991, Silver Lion and Golden Lion prizes at the Venice Film Festival, Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, and the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival. In 1993, he was a member of the jury at the 43rd Berlin International Film Festival. Zhang directed the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games, which received considerable international acclaim. One of Zhang's recurrent themes is the resilience of Chinese people in the face of hardship and adversity, a theme which has been explored in such films as, for example, To Live and Not One Less. His films are particularly noted for their rich use of colour, as can be seen in some of his early films, like Raise the Red Lantern, and in his wuxia films like Hero and House of Flying Daggers.

Chinese director Zhang Yimou and his wife, Chen Ting, admitted breaching the country's population control policy in an interview with the state news agency on Sunday. He and his wife gave birth to two sons and a girl respectively in 2001, 2004, and 2006, before their marriage in 2011. Zhang, however, denied rumors about celebrities like him dodging the penalty. He reiterated that he has never been granted any privilege by the family planning authority, and would cooperate with the bureau's investigation. Zhang faces a fine of $1.2 Million, the highest ever reported for such a case in China.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
