Vicki Zhao made an appearance at the Venice Film Festival, wearing a custom cloud blue formal dress on the red carpet. This visit to Venice is only a short two days, but Vicki’s schedule was packed. Arriving on the 4th and returning to China on the 5th, besides the red carpet and brand night, Vicki also accepted many interviews, talking about the new movie “To Our Eventually Lost Youth”, giving exclusive behind the scenes progress.
From talking with reporters, Vicki honestly said that “To Our Eventually Lost Youth is well known among young people, but is not well known among the older folks above 40 years old. This is because Vicki’s first directorial project does not allow any media to visit, so Vicki’s fans from all over the world have been following the Weibo “live broadcast” to keep up with Vicki’s news, so young people have paid more attention to this film.
From Vicki’s view, youth is something that everyone can talk about. “To Our Eventually Lost Youth” is a film about reality. The inspiration came from a novel, and youth, loss, and tribute are the three big themes. She has also tried to change the long name, but no other appropriate options came up.
Once the name was revealed, fans started to passionately debate, and Vicki sighed, “There’s almost no one that can say the name correctly.” The problem is at the pauses. Vicki demonstrated, “To Our/Eventually Lost/Youth.” It really is a bit long!
Directing for the first time, Vicki said, “It’s a long, complicated, and hard process. We planned to film for two months, but it took four months before we finished.” In talking about the hardships of being a female director, Vicki said, “Only the people who really love movies can continue, so I have a lot of respect to all the famous female directors.”
When talking about the power of the director, Vicki revealed, “I’m a woman. I’m willing to bear the hardship with everyone and continue on with everyone. The team is also very motivated, even working harder than me. This is the advantage of the female gentleness.”
For the entire first half of the year, Vicki was directing “To Our Eventually Lost Youth”. In the second half of the year, Vicki will enter into director Stanley Kwan’s new film Fang Lang Ji and return to acting. She still enjoys the acting process which allows her to be more emotional, unlike when she’s a director and must be cold and logical.
Stanley Kwan was the producer for Vicki’s first directorial work. Vicki said she received a lot of security and support from Stanley. At the set, Vicki became very confident with Stanley’s help and received a lot of encouragement and advice.
In Vicki’s heart, youth is something that everyone experiences and receives lots of feelings from. The most brilliant part of a life has many topics and emotions. Even though it’s short, it leaves many memories.
Compared to Hong Kong and Taiwan youth films, Vickie feels that the Mainland film she directed is better. It is more relatable for the youth today. Vicki said, “Hong Kong and Taiwan films focus on what youth desire for life. The Mainland film focuses on what youth need for survival. It’s a topic that will cause tears. A lot is lost, but a lot is gained.”
This afternoon, before leaving Venice, Vicki revealed, “Getting ready to leave the beautiful Venice. It’s strange that every time, I stay on the same island, even the same hotel. When I think about returning to the Beijing office, I absolutely cannot wait!” “To Our Eventually Lost Youth” is quickly being formed. Vicki’s plan is to reveal it around Chinese New Year next year. It’ll be a unique movie to celebrate!
