A bag full of yuan falls into the hands of two mob delivery guys, setting off a string of betrayals, twists and turns dragging us deep inside the unpredictable underworld of Southern China. The first animated Chinese feature film to ever compete at the Berlin Film Festival, Liu Jian’s Have a Nice Day is a laconically witty thriller that introduces western audiences to a bold new pop stylist. Featuring aging hitmen, philosopher gangsters, a motley crew of wanna-be criminals, and an irresistible soundtrack, the film is much more than a crafty animated neo-noir—it’s also an examination of Chinese society and of the social conditions pushing desperate individuals to the brink.
China Institute will co-present an outdoor sneak preview screening of the film with Rooftop Films, featuring live music and an after party. Get 25% off tickets with the code CHINAINSTITUTE.
