Chinese film director Zhang Yuan's new film "Beijing Flickers" released a new trailer in Beijing on Thursday, October 17th, 2013.

At a press conference held on Thursday, Zhang Yuan said that Chinese pop diva Faye Wong was the prototype for Youzi, the main character in the film. He added that when he shot China's first indie film "Beijing Bastard" Faye would go to the set to see Dou Wei, her ex-husband who acted in the film, every day. He explained that back in 1993, he wanted to shoot people's lives at that time, whereas now he wanted to shoot the living situations of modern young people. He explained that when designing characters, he could not help but cast Faye Wong's shadow into his works.

Born in 1963, Zhang Yuan was named one of the world's top 100 young industry leaders of the 21st century by Time magazine in 1994.

The film will reach theaters on November 8th, 2013.
