UPDATE 11/9/11: Congrats to our winners! Alice Tsui, Zareen and M. Lin will all receive books; Tina, Simon Tam and Kristina will all receive DVDs!
For those who have been waiting to watch Snow Flower and the Secret Fan at home, the time has come! The title was released on Blu-ray and DVD earlier this week, and as mentioned on GASP! last month, this is “perfect for a girl’s night in.” In this first-look, exclusive video clip above, producer Florence Sloan and author Lisa See talk about the story’s theme of friendship.
There’s now also website called The Snow Flower Story, a visual experience that immerses people in the video, music and photography of the film. Through these pages, written passages from the original novel are brought to life and complimented by imagery and video to create a seamless blend of book and film.
If that’s not enough, we’ve got 3 DVDs and 3 copies of the book Snow Flower and the Secret Fan for six lucky 8Asians winners! (How many different numbers can I throw into one sentence?)
Growing up in 19th century China, Lily (Bingbing Li, The Forbidden Kingdom) and Snow Flower (Gianna Jun, My Sassy Girl) are brought together in a Laotong friendship—a lifelong bond between two women who rely on each other for companionship and comfort. Amid the civil unrest and gender discrimination of the era, the pair deals with life’s hardships together until they are separated by marriage and childbirth. As sworn sisters, however, the women continue to communicate through the secret Chinese language of nushu, hiding their stories and messages within the folds of delicate silk fans.
In present day Shanghai, the Laotong’s descendants Nina (also played by Li) and Sophia (also played by Jun) struggle to maintain the intimacy of their own childhood friendship in the face of demanding careers and complicated love lives. Drawing on lessons of the past, the two modern women must understand the story of their ancestral connection or risk losing one another forever. What unfolds are two stories, generations apart, but everlasting in the notion of love, hope and friendship.
