Set against the spectacular landscape of the Three Gorges region, Jia Zhangke's humane and moving Golden-Lion winner tells two contemplative and compassionate stories of a man and a woman searching for absent spouses in Fengjie, an ancient town on the Yangtze River which is being demolished and will soon vanish for ever in the flooding caused by the controversial Three Gorges hydroelectric dam project.

The film is in Mandarin but will be shown with English subtitles.

This film was selected in partnership with the University of Nottingham’s Institute for Screen Industries Research (ISIR) from the BFI’s top ten Chinese language films (with English subtitles) from the 21st century. It will be presented with an introduction by Shiying Liu, a student from the University of Nottingham’s Department of Culture, Film and Media.
