XU JINGLEI was born in Beijing and trained as an actor at Beijing Film Academy. Upon graduation in 1997, she gained instant popularity for her roles in various TV series. In 1999, she won the prestigious Chinese Film Society Performance Award for her first major film role in Spicy Love Soup.
Her subsequent films include: Dazzling, Spring Subway (Beijing University Film Festival “Most Popular Actress”), I Love You (Chinese Film Baihua “Best Actress Award”), Far from Home (Golden Rooster “Best Supporting Actress”). Derek Elley of Variety describes her performance as “remarkably textured” and “should establish her as a young talent way beyond Mainland borders.”
She pushes her career in a different direction by writing, directing and producing her first feature, My Father and I. The film not only won her a Golden Rooster “Best Directing Debut Award” in her home country, but also received worldwide attention at major international film festivals including Toronto and Tokyo. The work was praised as “a small, multi-faceted gem of intimate wisdom”(Giovanna Fulvi, Toronto Film Festival) and “its vitality and honesty augur well for the future appeal and continued creativity of Chinese cinema’s freshest most promising new wave” (The Festival Daily of Toronto Film Festival).
Letter from and Unknown Woman is her second feature as a director and screenwriter.
