Pao Hsueh Lieh

Other names : 鲍学礼
Baau Hok Lai
Pao Hsieh Li
Birthdate : 25/10/1936
Nationality : China
Workplace : Hong Kong
Activities : Director (30), Cinematographer (15)


Long before Zhang Yimou saw a movie camera, Pao Hsueh Li was one of the few cinematographers to break into the field of directing. He was born in 1936 in Nanjing and moved to Taiwan in 1949. Upon graduation, he worked his way up from technician in a studio film processing lab to assistant cinematographer and cinematographer on numerous Taiwanese dialect films.

In 1966 Shaw Brothers director Law Chun (Lo Chen) engaged him to serve as cinematographer of the Taiwanese-lensed Mandarin film "Too Late For Love", released in 1967. Pao moved to Hong Kong and formally entered Shaw Brothers as cinematographer. Three years later he made his directorial debut "Finger Of Doom", and between 1971 and 1977 directed over a dozen films, many of them collaborations with Chang Cheh.

In 1977 he returned to Taiwan and formed his own filmcompany with his wife, scriptwriter Chin Shu Mei (Jin Shu Mei), with whom he had worked at Shaw Brothers on such films as "The Oath Of Death".
