▪ 2009

      Chinese film director

born Nov. 21, 1923, Shaoxing, China

found dead Oct. 18, 2008, Shangyu, China
examined the consequences of China's Cultural Revolution (1966–76) in a series of epic motion pictures, including The Legend of Tianyun Mountain (1980), The Herdsman (1982), and, most notably, Hibiscus Town (1986). Xie embarked on a career in the film industry in the mid-1940s and first attracted international attention as the writer and director of Two Stage Sisters (1964). Denounced and forced to work as a manual labourer during the Cultural Revolution, he was eventually rehabilitated and went on to chronicle the lives of the era's victims in much of his later work. Hibiscus Town was honoured in China with the Golden Rooster award for best film in 1987 and the following year received the Crystal Globe for best feature film at the Karlovy Vary (Czech Rep.) International Film Festival. Among Xie's other films were Garlands at the Foot of the Mountain (1983), The Last Aristocrats (1989), and The Opium War (1997).
