Mr. John Woo Yu Sum
(1946-)

Director and script-writer John Woo was born in Guangzhou and grew up in Hong Kong. A great film lover from youth, John Woo wrote film reviews, made experimental films, worked as a continuity man and an assistant to directors before finally becoming a director himself. From 1971 to 1972, he was an assistant to leading director Chang Cheh at the Shaw Brothers’ Studio. His directorial debut was "The Young Dragons" (1975), and he soon joined the Golden Harvest as contract director, during which he made Cantonese opera film “Princess Chang Ping” (1976) and comedy “The Pilferers' Progress” (1977). Woo dabbled in various genres before making the genre-setting film "A Better Tomorrow" in 1986. The success of the film triggered off a spate of similar action type movies and Woo himself was spurred on to make "The Killer" (1989), "Bullet in the Head" (1990), "Once a Thief" (1991) and "Hard Boiled" (1992). In 1993, Woo ventured into Hollywood where he made "Hard Target" (1993), "Broken Arrow" (1996), "Face/Off" (1997), "Mission Impossible II" (2000), "Windtalkers" (2002) and "Paycheck" (2003). In recent years, Woo returned to China to direct Chinese films including prominent projects like “Red Cliff” (2008) and “The Crossing” (2014). He was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Venice Film Festival in 2010.
