This is the epic story of Mei Lan Fang – the performer who overcame the prejudice to become China’s greatest opera star.

Born to a family of Beijing performers in 1894, Lan Fang grew up in a period where opera stars were the equivalent to prostitutes. Charting the early roles that brought him fame with a younger generation, his marriage and eventual move to America, and his meteoric rise to stardom, this is a beautifully filmed retelling of Lan Fang’s dramatic life.

With thrilling recreations of 1930’s China, this tremendous biopic was nominated for the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival.
