In the eyes of Mr. Hou Hsiao-Hsien

Today we had the luxury of spending the day with film director Hou Hsiao-Hsien and his lovely wife. After a different dinner at the entrance cafeteria of ICA Maxi i Mölndal we continued to Kungälv where we looked at some old houses and a castle – Tried to go many places but couldn’t reach people. We decided to go to my home instead and just relax. (and of course I told everything and nothing about my cool equipment! :D

First picture where I was happy to see my self inside his eyes. :D (see crop below first picture) – I should of course have saved the blow out but well..

    Herregud, you gut the jackpot there!!! Envy!!!!!

    Well,I had a nice time at dinner with them as well, but no pictures, tried to get them some privacy -;P But hey, you can definitively be proud of this experiences, what the Festival can do!!!

    See ya.

  2. hehe – actually I tried to give him some privacy when we spent the day. Not very easy, especially when you have such a relaxed person – and famous as him.

    So you went to the dinner? We will go out tonight – maybe you wanna join?

    PS. Cornelia is another photographer that I met at the film festival.

    Excellent photos Carl,
    I’m sure they appreciated a nice home cooked meal with some real people – very cool indeed!

    what a surprise! I’ve been to the filmfest in stockholm this year but never had a chance to meet a director like him. I like his movies a lot, which have a unique feeling and quality of chinese.

  6. Hi Tao! :) He’s great and I’m very happy I had a chance to spend some time with him. He’s really an interesting guy and I find myself grow slightly after. :)
