Deng studied ancient Eastern culture and is passionate about his worldview…"Everything is a story, the past, present and future of humanity. One is all, all is one and all things and phenomena originates from the same source. Both Eastern and Western civilizations are telling the same story, just expressing it in different ways. Western civilization calls it "God," while Eastern civilization calls it "Dao." As the saying goes, there are saints in the East and saints in the West, their hearts are the same and their principles are the same. I look forward to developing movies that are avant-garde, fashionable and filled with eternal mysteries."
