UPDATE 7/29/2011: Congrats to our winners! Weenie & Stephanie Downie will both be receiving autographed posters! Jennifer Rico will be receiving the book!
Between myself (trailer), Edward (review), and Dino (interview of the director), we’ve said a lot about the film Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, directed by Wayne Wang and based on Lisa See’s bestselling novel.
We’ve got 2 posters, signed by Wayne Wang, Lisa See, Executive Producers Florence Sloan and Wendi Murdoch (yes, that would be THE Wendi Deng Murdoch) and an (unsigned) copy of the book Snow Flower and the Secret Fan for three lucky 8Asians winners!
Synopsis of the film:
In 19th-century China, seven-year-old girls Snow Flower and Lily are matched as laotong – or “old sames” – bound together for eternity. Isolated by their families, they furtively communicate by taking turns writing in a secret language, nu shu, between the folds of a white silk fan.
In a parallel story in present day Shanghai, the laotong’s descendants, Nina and Sophia, struggle to maintain the intimacy of their own childhood friendship in the face of demanding careers, complicated love lives, and a relentlessly evolving Shanghai. Drawing on the lessons of the past, the two modern women must understand the story of their ancestral connection, hidden from them in the folds of the antique white silk fan, or risk losing one another forever.
What unfolds are two stories, generations apart, but everlasting in their universal notion of love, hope and friendship.
