Gala Honoree and esteemed alumnus of the Graduate Film program, Ang Lee '84, recently spoke with Variety about his career, his time at NYU Tisch, and what he's working on now.

Lee will be honored at the Tisch Gala on Monday, April 8 at Cipriani South Street, celebrating the filmmaker's incredible career following graduation.


"On one hand, Ang Lee can’t believe it’s been 40 years since he graduated from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. “Don’t remind me!” he responds with a laugh when this milestone is brought up. But at the same time, Lee says, little has changed since he received his MFA in film production. “Whether 40 years or 15 years or even two months, my career feels like a continuation of school. I like to think I’m always in film school, making different projects and exploring how to make movies. It’s just the world is now my school.”"
