Director/producer Peter Ho-Sun Chan is a leading figure in the Asian film industry. His new feature "Dearest," the intense followup to 2013's "American Dreams in China," centers on the true story of a divorced couple whose three-year-old goes suddenly missing. Issues of nature vs. nurture, long buried secrets and ancestry arise. Watch the trailer, exclusive to TOH!, below.

"Dearest" will screen out of competition at the Venice Film Festival -- which Hong Kong director Chan closed in 2005 with musical "Perhaps Love" -- and in the Special Presentations section of Toronto in the coming weeks. Chan, it's worth noting, serves on BAFTA's Asia advisory board.
