Visiting an ongoing "Week of Chinese Film" that takes place here, Chinese ambassador to Serbia Li Manchang said Tuesday that Serbian audience will get to know contemporary China much better by watching movies it has to offer.
Together with representatives of the Chinese embassy and the audience, Li watched the espionage thriller "The Message" (2009), directed by Chen Kuo-Fu and Gao Qunshu in the cinema located inside the Museum of Ruma, a town some 60 kilometers northwest of Belgrade.
The program of the festival presents a selection of movies from the past decade: "Confucius" by Hu Mei (2010), "The Storm Riders" by Andrew Lau (1998), Teddy Chan's "Bodyguards and Assassins" (2009), "The Warlords" by Peter Chan (2007) and "Tuya's Marriage" directed by Wang Quan'an (2006).
"Many people from Serbia don't know enough about China. This festival is meant to introduce modern China to as many Serbian citizens as we can," Li told Xinhua.
