Event Description

(2018) dir Cathy Yan w/Vivian Wu, Haoyu Yang, Mason Lee, Meng Li, David Rysdahl (130 min; DCP]

This black comedy from Chinese-American writer/director Cathy Yan follows the intertwining fates of 5 disparate people caught in the inexorable tides of a rapidly-modernizing Shanghai. Central is Candy (Wu), a feisty salon owner who refuses to sell her family home to a developer, and Old Wang (Yang), a pig farmer who has lost the one way for him to pay back his debt to a gangster. Alongside this irascible pair, a romantic busboy (Lee), a disenchanted rich girl (Li), and an ex-pat American architect (Rysdahl) struggle to find their places in contemporary China… and all the while, a mysterious stream of pig carcasses floats silently towards the city.

Catch up with this director’s debut feature before she breaks big – Yan is currently at work on the first big-budget, all-female superhero team-up movie, Birds of Prey!
