Feng Xiaogang, one of China's highest-grossing film directors, has immortalized his handprints in cement at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. He was the first Chinese mainland director to receive the honor.
"This is a good and interesting thing," Feng was quoted by The Hollywood Reporter as saying. "It represents a reward for my hard work in making films. Being accepted in this Hollywood family, I feel it is such a recognition for my work."
Seven of Feng's films, including "Back to 1942", "Aftershock" and "Cellphone", were screened at the TCL Chinese Theatre over the past weekend as part of the Beijing Film Panorama in America.
"Back to 1942" is vying for a nomination for the Best Foreign-language Oscar.
Feng's latest comedy film, "Personal Tailor", is slated to hit domestic screens on December 19.
