Long Day’s Journey into Night

April 13 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Director: Bi Gan
Runtime: 139 minutes
Format: DCP
Language: Mandarin with English Subtitles

Bi Gan follows up his knockout debut, Kaili Blues, with this noir-tinged stunner about a lost soul (Jue Huang) on a quest to find a missing woman from his past (Wei Tang, Lust, Caution). Following leads across Guizhou province, he crosses paths with a series of colorful characters, among them a prickly hairdresser played by Taiwanese superstar Sylvia Chang. When the search leads him to a dingy movie theater, the film launches into an hour-long, gravity-defying 3D sequence shot that plunges its protagonist—and us—into a labyrinthine cityscape.

Join China Institute Film Club members at the 3:00 PM Screening on Saturday, although the film will screen at Lincoln Center at other times throughout the weekend.
