Why nowadays are most TV series costume dramas and period dramas? Because it's too difficult to put a drama that reflects reality onto the screen. I created a TV drama, One Family from Wenzhou, which tells the story of how a family from Zhejiang province made a living by doing business across the country in the 1980s and finally expanded their business to Europe. When I proposed the drama to the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television, they asked me to consult and get approval from six ministries1, including the Ministry2 of Foreign Affairs and the National Energy Administration.

When I was young I received much help from the older generation of film people. Now, it's time for us to nurture3 the next generation. I will serve as president of Shanghai Film Academy. It's a university. But I don't think it necessary for a young man who has talent for movies to score 600 in the national college entrance examination.
