“China is not an unknown country to me, and I have been to many cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Hong Kong before, but just for work,” French director Jerome Salle said. “If I have enough time to watch the vitality of this magic land, maybe my next film’s inspiration will just come as naturally.”

On Oct 13, the 46-year-old filmmaker brought his latest biographical adventure movie, The Odyssey, to Beijing and exchanged ideas with Chinese movie-goers.

The Odyssey premiered in China this month during the 2017 Franco-Chinese Month of the Environment.
