An encounter with Ang Lee blogger Paul Daza shares video from the celebrated director’s visit to Manila

( On the evening of November 28, 2013, the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in the Philippines, in partnership with SM Aura Premier, presented A Salute To Ang Lee, a special by-invitation only event. The affair was held at the IMAX theater of SM Aura, and began with a screening of Lee's latest film, Life of Pi, which won four Academy Awards last February (including a best director Oscar for Lee, his second). The highlight of the homage was a historic open forum with the filmmaker, who was visiting Manila for the very first time.

We got 35 minutes of video from the open forum:
