FROM THIS EPISODE

thousand_years.jpgONLINE EXCLUSIVE: Director Wayne Wang (Joy Luck Club) not only moves from studio films such as Maid in Manhattan to indies such as Smoke, but also blurs the line between truth and fiction. That's the heart of his new film, A Thousand Years of Good Prayers.

Wang discusses his inspirations for the movie (which is based on a short story by Granta-winner Yiyun Li); China's traditions, fears and its current explosion onto the world stage; the influence of Satyajit Ray, and how a language barrier may allow the truth to be "spoken" in the silences.
