2006-07-15 15:23

  第29届奥运会开、闭幕式的导演团队最终敲定,张艺谋出任总导演,张继钢、陈维亚分任副总导演,而陈凯歌与史蒂文·斯皮尔伯格则是文化艺术顾问组的成员。4月16日上午,北京奥组委举行了聘书颁发仪式。

  Directors Zhang Yimou (left) and Steven Spielberg: Film greats collaborate. A star-studded cast will put together the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympic Games, the Beijing Organizing Committee for the Games of the XXIX Olympiad (BOCOG) announced yesterday.

  Internationally acclaimed Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou was appointed chief director for both the opening and closing ceremonies, while multi-Oscar winning Hollywood director Steven Spielberg was named artistic adviser.

  “Today will be an unforgettable day in my life and I feel very honoured to be the director of the ceremonies,” said 54-year-old Zhang at the appointment ceremony yesterday.

  “I have also felt much responsibility to the task and I make a solemn promise that I will work with the whole team to accomplish the task successfully.”

  Known as China's “Fifth Generation” director,Zhang is famous around the world for his 1991 film “Raise the Red Lantern,” and his 2004 work,“House of Flying Daggers,” both of which were nominated for Oscars.

  Zhang will be assisted by two deputy directors: Zhang Jigang,director of the Song and Dance Ensemble affiliated with the General Political Department of the Chinese People's Liberation Army; and Chen Weiya, director of the China National Song and Dance Ensemble.

  Led by renowned US director Spielberg,a group of artists,experts and professors from both home and abroad will offer their help as cultural and artistic advisers.

  “It's a great honour to accept this appointment as an overseas adviser,”said Spielberg,whose most recent film “Munich” was based on the events in the aftermath of the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics.

  “On behalf of all the other advisers,I'd like to say that our one goal is to give the world a taste of peace, friendship, co-operation and understanding.”

  “Through the visual and performing arts, the art of music,the art of dance and the art of celebration of life,all of us are dedicated to making these Olympic opening and closing ceremonies the most emotional everyone has ever seen.”

  Australian Richard Birch,who directed the highly praised opening and closing ceremonies of the 2000 Sydney Olympics, and Yves Pepin, president of French company ECA2,will also be advisers.

  During the campaign to find the production team for the ceremonies last year,409 works were submitted to organizers,and five of them were short-listed after evaluation.

  The directors and producers from the top five nominated presentations were commissioned by BOCOG to produce the events by combining the best elements and merits of the five.
