Li Bingbing went to Cannes to promote SNOW FLOWER AND THE SECRET FAN, her film with Gianna Jun Ji-Hyun. The international distributor Nadiya that earlier landed the Oscar winning film BLACK SWAN already purchased the film's overseas distribution rights. Director Wayne Wang was very happy to hear the good news. Although Wayne Wong was editing SNOW and missed the chance to attend Cannes, the film sale added to Wayne Wang's sense of responsibility as he decided to attend the Shanghai International Film Festival in June to share with the audience the production experience.
Nadiya revealed its preference for women films. SNOW was an emotional story about two women in the end of the Qing Dynasty and in modern times. Director Wayne Wang said that with the film's international distribution rights sold in advance, he could work hard on making the film's post production its best.
