The 16th Annual Shanghai International Film Festival opened last night. The Golden Goblet Award international jury that included Vicki Zhao Wei who just gave birth met with the press first. This was Zhao Wei's first Mainland public appearance after giving birth, thus when she spoke flash bulbs kept flashing. Zhao Wei was unwilling to talk about herself personally and only expressed that she was very happy to return to film as a part of the Golden Goblet Award jury.
The seven jury members included John Woo (Ng Yu Sum), Leos Carax, Wang Xiaoshuai, Zhao Wei, Yojiro Takita and others. Because yesterday was Zhao Wei's first Mainland appearance since giving birth, she immediately became the center of attention. When a reporter asked the first question, before Zhao Wei even began to answer all the flash bulbs went off nonstop at the venue. Zhao Wei could not help but laugh at the exaggerated scene. A reporter asked why she chose to come back with the film festival, whether her health would be able to handle such an intense film screening schedule? She expressed that she was fine and was very happy to come back to work in film in such a manner. She said, "I want to tell everyone, everything is great. I also have always been thinking about what chance I can return to work with. Film is my favorite and something that has always been with me in my life. My participation in this jury is not just work but also enjoyment. I am very happy to see everyone in such a manner." A reporter asked whether she has brought her daughter to Shanghai with her. She said that she did not want to waste everyone's time with personal questions and did not respond.
