Dir. Bi Gan, China, 2015, 113 min.Chen, a rural Chinese doctor, leaves his small clinic in the dreary city of Kalili to find his nephew who has been sent away. He travels by train, boat, motorcycle and more through towns where others appear to be on searches of their own. In one small town along the way, past, present, and future all seem to be interwoven in this elusive film where symbols and visuals trump the spoken word and action.
All films are screened in their original language with English subtitles. Presented by International Education and the Media Resource Center. Part of ChinaFest Film Weekend.
