After This Our Exile (of Cinema Festa Internazionale di Roma)

After This Our Exile is the long awaited return to film for one of the great masters of Hong Kong Cinema ~ Patrick Tam: a man whose distinguished career has made a significant contribution to the Hong Kong television and film industry. Many filmmakers cite Tam as an important influence in their filmmaking styles ~ a reputation enhanced by his position as pioneer of the Hong Kong “New Wave” Directors in the 1980s (a movement which included internationally renowned names such as Ann Hui, Tsui Hark and Allen Fung). He is a distinguished director, art director and editor with an innate sense of refined aesthetics and artistic sensibilities more often associated with European art-house films than Hong Kong Cinema.

Patrick Tam’s directing credits include classics such as The Sword, Love Massacre, Nomad, Final Victory, Burning Snow and My Heart Is That Eternal Rose. Tam is also known as one of the most sought after editors and art directors in Asia having edited the acclaimed Days Of Being Wild and Ashes Of Time for Wong Kar-wai and more recently Election for Johnnie To. After This Our Exile has been more than 10 years in the making and marks a highly anticipated return of the talented director.
