The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences will be honoring Director/Writer Wong Kar-wai on July 22, 2013 with an onstage conversation followed by a sneak preview of his latest film, The Grandmaster.

From the Academy’s website:

Hong Kong-based filmmaker Wong Kar Wai is known for his unique sense of style and emotionally resonant work. The first Chinese director to win the Best Director Award at the Cannes Film Festival for his 1997 film “Happy Together,” Wong has been called a “poet of time” by Sight & Sound and “perhaps the most revered and singular of Hong Kong auteurs” by The New York Times.
