Filmmaker Lulu Wang shot a new short for Apple to celebrate Chinese New Year and showcase the latest iPhone’s camera.
The film: According to Variety, Wang and her team from “The Farewell” and shot the film entirely on an iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Lulu Wang has slammed the announcement of Ron Howard as director of an upcoming biopic about a famed Chinese pianist.
The biographical drama, which is yet to receive a title, will focus on Lang Lang — the first Chinese pianist to perform with the Berlin Philharmonic, the Vienna Philharmonic and top American orchestras, and one who has played for multiple international dignitaries, including former U.S. President Barack Obama, former Chinese President Hu Jintao, former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and Queen Elizabeth II.
One lucky viewer had the most amazing, accidental private showing of “The Farewell” in San Diego, with none other than writer/director Lulu Wang, herself.
Wang’s critically acclaimed indie drama-comedy debuted at the Sundance Film Festival to rave reviews, shortly becoming an inspiring success.
