Summer Snow(1995), In the Mood for Love(2000), Millennium Mambo(2001): Just three of the classic Chinese-language films shot by prolific Taiwanese cinematographer Mark LEE Ping-Bing. LEE’s grasp of the subtleties of color, light and shadow allows him to capture the details of life in a scene’s overall surroundings. His ability to create gorgeous compositions through a keen eye for the visual world has earned him the name, “The Poet of Light and Shadow”.
Shot over three years and across many countries, this documentary takes a close look at LEE’s creative trajectory and his unique artistic vision. His meticulousness and consistent working practices have impressed all those directors he’s worked with. He is also tremendously generous in mentoring the industry’s newcomers. And behind the glamorous success, the unconditional support of LEE’s family has always been the source of his strength. “The world has become smaller, yet home has become more distant,” says LEE, conveying all too well the solitude felt from constantly being away from home and the longing to return.
