Professor Zhang Xianmin, who is known as the "Godfather of Chinese Independent Films" once said: "Han Tao will be a person who can't get around in China's independent film circle."

In 2006, at the third documentary exchange week in Hefei, the famous documentary filmmaker Wu Wenguang said: "A lot of documentary film directors are shooting people's sufferings coldly, but they never point their cameras at themselves. Han Tao's "Who is me?" The Lord gave us a slap in the face."

His speech[edit]

Han Tao: "My film is aimed at my own life. For a documentary film director, I want to tell you what I am experiencing, what is happening, what I am thinking about, and I will take it out and show it to you."
