From 2002 to 2012, Zhao Yigong has interviewed over 1,200 filmmakers and crew members from the Chinese film industry. These interviews have resulted in an oral history archive of more than 3,000 interview hours. The filmmakers featured are some of the main figures in the Chinese film world from the 1940s to the 1990s. Interview subjects include notable figures such as Tang Xiaodan, Wang Weiyi, Chen-Liting, Sun Daolin, Tian Hua, Qin Yi, and Zhang Ru Fang. In collaboration with Han Meng, Zhao Yigong also produced the documentary series "New China, New Cinema."
