Ms Yang will speak generally about the exploding film industry in China, and its relationship with Hollywood, as well as her specific experiences and insights in making movies between the two places. She will compare what it was looking shooting Steven Spielberg's Empire of the Sun in the mid-80's, and her recent movie, Shanghai Calling, shot in many similar locations 25 years later.
