Oscar-winning director Ang Lee's work captures cultural, racial, sexual, and generation clashes from China to Wyoming. His creative genius bloomed late: he came to America from Taiwan at age 23, but didn't make his first film until age 37 because language and cultural barriers were difficult to overcome. Two of his movies, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Brokeback Mountain, are among the most influential films ever made. Lee has made movies in English, Taiwanese, and Mandarin Chinese, making him a true global artist.
