SCREENPLAY - CHENG AH

Hugely popular Third Generation filmmaker Xie Jin’s sweeping, classic melodrama of Chinese cinema is an epic narrative about a young woman and her husband trying to find happiness amidst rural poverty, and who find themselves caught up in the country’s Cultural Revolution of the Maoist late sixties. The film was significantly cut for international release, but we are pleased to present the original director’s cut.
