Director Dong Yue Talks About Debut Film The Looming Storm

China’s young director Dong Yue brought his debut film The Looming Storm to this year’s New York Asian Film Festival, where it made its North American Premiere in Lincoln Center this week.

The movie, set in the grim 90s in China, is about factory guard, Yu Guo Wei, whose obsessive drive to become a police officer leads him on a hunt to find a serial murderer in order to prove himself worthy. Dong wanted to use a thriller story to communicate his understanding of the value of history and social changes.
