Star: Stealth darkness, only for the most sincere tribute
In previous Hollywood festivals, many big names such as Judy Foster, Anne Hathaway, Robert Pattinson, etc. have stood on this stage. The stars were hidden from the darkness, launched their partners behind the scenes, and gave them bright spotlights.

Another example is Zhang Meng, screenwriter and director of ‘Steel Piano’.
