Lee comes home to northern California film fest

California (Hollywood Reporter) - The tribute to Ang Lee at the Mill Valley Film Festival was something of a homecoming for the Oscar-winning director of "Brokeback Mountain" and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."

When the Taiwanese filmmaker brought out his first movie, "Pushing Hands," in 1992, the San Francisco Bay Area festival "was the only place in the world that would show my film," Lee told the audience Friday. "Even Sundance turned it down."
