  Zhang He - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Zhang He (張郃) (167 231) was a distinguished military general under the powerful warlord Cao Cao during the late Eastern Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms era in ancient China.
After Cao Cao's death in 220, Zhang He was primarily engaged with defending the Kingdom of Wei against the Northern Expeditions led by Chancellor Zhuge Liang of the Kingdom of Shu.
Zhang He was then sent to assist Sima Yi, who was training a naval force in Jingzhou (荆州, present day Hubei and Hunan) to prepare for an assault against the Kingdom of Wu.

 Zhang Yimou - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Zhang then collaborated with Chen Kaige, the latter acting as director, to photograph one of the defining Chinese films of the 1980s, Yellow Earth (1984), later to be considered the inauguration film for the Chinese Fifth-Generation directors.
Upon completing this film, Zhang then made To Live (1994; Cannes Best Actor for Ge You), a film based on the acclaimed novel by Yu Hua, which is an epic framework about the resilience of the ordinary Chinese folks, personified by its two leads, amidst three generations of historical upheavals throughout the 20th century.
Zhang's succeeding major project was the ambitious wuxia drama Hero (2002), which follows after his second film in a series about modern Chinese city-life, Happy Times (2000).

Zhang, as he pleads the case that he is "looking for safe haven" but deeply scared by now of ending up in "a Chinese communist jail," it seems to me that surely America could find a little more room for those who risk so much to come over the wall.
