Despite being away from the limelight for eight years, it's been quite a year for Hong Kong director Wong Kar-wai. His masterpieces were restored and screened in the Lincoln Centre, in Hong Kong cinemas and arrived in a Criterion box set, alongside the release of a new documentary. The clamour that the restored version of his beloved works received shows that the legendary filmmaker is still very much loved despite his long hiatus.
But the long break has been productive as Wong has been working hard on his highly-anticipated come back to the director's seat with Blossoms Shanghai. It looks like we won't be waiting too long now as the first trailer of the TV series has just been revealed. The period drama marks the director's switch to television and teams up with award-winning Shanghainese screenwriter Qin Wen.
