‘The World of Wong Kar-Wai’ Retrospective Hits Film At Lincoln Center In June

The World of Wong Kar-Wai, a touring retrospective that celebrates the 20th anniversary of his seminal feature In the Mood for Love, premieres June 5 at New York’s Film at Lincoln Center. If you’re not a Big Apple resident, no need to worry as a national rollout will follow.

The retrospective will feature 4K Restorations of Wong Kar-wai’s films As Tears Go By (1988), Days of Being Wild (1990), Chungking Express (1994), Fallen Angels (1995), Happy Together (1997), and In the Mood for Love (2000).

Also included is the director’s cut of The Hand, a short film that was part of the 2004 project Eros (Steven Soderbergh and Michelangelo Antonioni helmed the other two shorts).

“It has been a wonderful and personal experience for me to collaborate with Janus Films and Criterion Collection on the restoration of my films,” said Wong Kar-Wai. “With their impeccable expertise and passions towards cinema, I look forward to the launch of my titles in June 2020 in theaters and celebrating the 20th anniversary of In the Mood for Love.”

Criterion Collection and Janus Films president Peter Becker that the director “combines a passionate, romantic sensibility with brilliant formal innovations that made his themes of love and longing all the more affecting.”

Like countless other cinephiles, I’ve been profoundly affected by Wong Kar-wai’s work, and I’m looking forward to attending the retrospective. Along with In the Mood for Love, I’m excited to see the restoration for Chungking Express and see how Wong Kar-wai director’s cut of The Hand (along with The Grandmaster, it’s probably his most underrated work).
