A TOUCH OF SIN was one of my favorite films of 2013, and the winner of the Best Screenplay award at Cannes in the same year. It premiered at the 2013 New York Film Festival and opened in NY theaters (Lincoln Plaza and IFC Center) days after its NYFF screenings. Mr. Jia Zhangke, along with actress Zhao Tao (also his wife), came to New York to promote the film’s opening, and both had a great time meetings audience members (to sold-out houses) in both theaters.
I also commissioned designer Matt Frost to design the film’s US poster (seen here), and I was very happy with the result; it’s simple but looming and gloomy. I think this compares favorably with other foreign posters for A TOUCH OF SIN.
Susan Norget handled the film’s TIFF and NYFF premiere, as well as its New York and national launch. Beautifully.
Unfortunately, the film has yet to be released in Chinese cinemas.
