As reported on Yibada News, the Zhang Yimou film has been selected as one of China’s representatives for the Best Foreign Language Film category, in addition to Peter Chan’s “Dearest” and blogger-turned-filmmaker Han Han’s directorial debut, “The Continent”.
After losing at the recent Golden Horse Awards, Gong Li’s film “Coming Home” will be competing once again at an international level – this time as one of China’s entries for Hollywood’s 2015 Golden Globe Awards.
The movie will also be competing against films from other countries including a Russian film “Leviathan”, and French films “Mommy” and “Venus in Fur”.
Last year, none of China’s entries won the category, despite sending five films to the competition, including Wong Kar Wai’s “The Grandmaster” and Jia Zhangke’s “A Touch of Sin”.
The 2015 Golden Globe Awards will be held on 11 January 2015, and will be hosted by comediennes Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for the third time.
