In connection with this summer’s presentation of the astonishing Under Siege from Chinese choreographer Yang Liping (August 8–10), the festival screens Ang Lee’s martial arts masterpiece, which won four Academy Awards, including Best Foreign Language Film. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is a drama of breathtaking beauty set against the stunning scenic design of Oscar winner Tim Yip, who brings his visual artistry to Under Siege. The film’s Oscar-winning score by Tan Dun features haunting cello solos performed by Yo-Yo Ma.
