Iris Wu Duu-Chih Tu


TU Duu-Chih is the mind and ear behind the sound of numerous Mandarian-speaking films. In a career spanning over four decades, Tu has worked with prominent directors such as Edward Yang, Hou Hsiao-Hsien, and Wang Kar-Wei. With a record of twelve Golden Horse Awards and a Cannes’ Technical Grand Prize on his belt, Tu received the National Award for Arts from Taiwan in 2004 for his significant contribution to the art and science of film in Taiwan. In this session, Tu will use some examples to share how he created the sound of these Mandarian classics. Let's check if there is really some cultural similarities and differences in crafting the sound and (of course) dealing with remote workflow.
