The film LOVE FOR LIFE (JUI OI)'s sister film, the anti AIDS discrimination documentary, TOGETHER, held a global online premiere earlier. TOGETHER and LOVE FOR LIFE director Gu Changwei and stars Zhang Ziyi and Jiang Wenli attended the press conference. The AIDS patients who bravely performed in TOGETHER also attended.
Speaking of LOVE FOR LIFE, Zhang Ziyi pointed out that the character saved her as the film was very meaningful to her. She said, "The director gave me a window and let this character save me." Ziyi said that she had too many emotions that she had no way to express, but this character struggled along with her, faced the complicated conflicts of life and gave her another life. She said, "This was no ordinary character."
In TOGETHER, the filmmakers had a lot of close contact with AIDS patients. Zhang Ziyi even brought her visiting niece to play games with a boy with AIDS, filling the documentary with warmth. Zhang Ziyi said that this group brought her a lot of feelings. She was very touched to see how strong they were. They also brought her a lot of joy like friends. Ziyi also urged the community to be like their team and accept people with AIDS.
In addition, Feng Xiaogang, Jiang Wen and Lu Chuen guest starred in LOVE FOR LIFE. Which asked which director performed the best, Ziyi said that nothing needed to be said about Jiang Wen. His foul mouth train operator was very exciting. To her, Gu Changwei gave Xiaogang a particularly rare character to play. The performance was rare but was finally cut, which truly was regrettable.
