March 19 only
As of March 11, in addition to increased sanitation throughout our facilities and other precautions we are taking, we are also reducing seating capacity in each of our theaters to a number that will allow for what is presently considered sufficient space for social distancing.
We are evaluating the situation as it evolves on a daily basis and will continue to follow the guidance of government agencies. We understand that circumstances will likely remain fluid in the coming days and weeks. We will adapt accordingly and update you with any changes to our programs.
“A raw virtuoso work of the utmost impact and awareness, released just as Hong Kong was changing hands.”
– Los Angeles Times
FIRST U.S. RELEASE
Co-presented by CAAM!
The first independent film released in post-Handover Hong Kong, director Fruit Chan’s atmospheric shoestring-budget character study is a rough-and-ready piece of work shot on grainy leftover 35mm short ends in the city’s overcrowded subsidized housing projects. The result is a tough, pessimistic film, a portrait of a city on the brink that follows the drifting of high school dropout and wannabe Triad tough Autumn Moon (Sam Lee, in a star-making role, opposite a largely non-professional cast), who sees little hope for his future or that of his home as a newly created Special Administrative Region within China. A raw, groundbreaking drama and portrait of nihilistic youth in the same vein as Rebel Without a Cause (Nicholas Ray, 1955), My Own Private Idaho (Gus Van Sant, 1991), and Doom Generation (Gregg Araki, 1995), the film poses questions that remain burningly relevant as tumult engulfs Hong Kong.
Directed by Fruit Chan. With Sam Lee, Neiky Yim, Wenders Li. 1997. In Cantonese with English subtitles. 108 minutes. DCP.
NOTE FILMS START RIGHT AT THE LISTED SHOWTIME.
