I’m getting ready for my first screening of A Man Like Me in China. The film has a Chinese connection as it stars Hong Kong Actress Stephanie Che as a Chinese immigrant in Iceland, part of the film was also shot in mainland China and Hong Kong. So it’s good that finally after all these years I’m able to show it here in Beijing.
I’ve heard that the former Chinese ambassador to Iceland has been invited and will attend. He helped us during our production back in 2001, both with Visa issues for the crew and introducing us to the Chinese community in Iceland. This will be the first time he actually see’s the film.
The picture is from a party the ambassador held for the actors and crew, ambassador on the left and me on the right.
