Interview: Philip Yung – Where the Wind Blows

In anticipation for the upcoming 95th Academy Awards, I chatted with Philip Yung, whose film Where the Wind Blows (previously known as Theory Of Ambitions) is Hong Kong’s official submission in consideration for the Best International Feature Category. Yung unites two of Hong Kong’s biggest stars, Tony Leung and Aaron Kwok, to headline this crime saga spanning 1940s to 1960s Hong Kong. Yung speaks of his cinematic inspirations in approaching the subject matter, a love for the period, and his quest to cast Tony Leung as a crooked cop.
