QA with Changfu Zhang, producer, director and creator.

From “this winter” to “Lotus pool”


How did you arrived into the doc world ?

My film career started in the late of 1990′s, just after I graduated from Beijing Film Academy.

Ten years ago, as a freelancer based in Beijing,I co – directed two feature length creative documentaries: “This winter” and “Haozi Mountain Mao”. They were both selected in prestige international documentary film festivals such as Yamagata, Visions du Reel Nyon and Marseille.

“This winter” won the award of Best Debut in Marseille 2002 and was broadcasted on Arte France.

The two docs tends to be regarded as full independent productions without Co – production partners.

In 2008 a short doc about bali bombing was finished in three months.This doc was presented in 25th Market of International Short Film Festival Clermont-Ferrand.

Are you currently producing a documentary ? with a European partner ?

My new project “Lotus Pool”, a feature length creative doc, is still in pre – production stage.
This film follows the Reunion journey emerging from unexpected changes in current China mainland, in which a couple of teacher and student struggle to regain the the lost Innocence originated in the golden era of 1980’s after they undergoes twenty years of separation.

For achieving high quality with international market value,major European broadcasters like Arte France / Channel 4 as well as ITVS/ PBS are this doc’s Co – production seeking partners.
One year long had been spent on the Research & Development of this Doc.

What are u looking for in a cooperation with European producers / broadcasters ?

Certain finance supporting the production of this HD Doc tends to be the main goal during cooperation, but more and more audience will be the most important thing relevant to this project , I think.
Although Pre – sale broadcasting rights to many regions seems to be tough in current situation, International Doc market is still stable !

Why did you called your company Golden Tiger Pictures

Very easy. I was born the year of Tiger !
