Many Chinese directors practice self-censorship because of the tight controls. But I think this is fatal. Directors must be free. So I say to everyone when we are working, 'Let's forget censorship.'

Trivia:

Banned by the Chinese government from making movies for two years in 2000 for making Suzhou River without an approval from the authority. See more »
