At once an intimate drama and a decades-spanning epic that leaps from the recent past to the present to the speculative near-future, this film from “Sixth Generation” filmmaker Zhangke is an intensely moving study of how China’s economic boom and the culture of materialism it has spawned has affected the bonds of family, tradition, and love. Official selection at the Cannes Film Festival.


Speaker: Catherine Yeh, a professor of Chinese and Comparative Literature at Boston University whose teaching and research interests include 19th and 20th century Chinese literary, media, and visual culture.
