Acclaimed Chinese film
7 PM
Cinematheque at the Cleveland Institute of Art
11610 Euclid Avenue

AN ELEPHANT SITTING STILL. DA XIANG XI DI ER ZUO. China, 2018, Hu Bo (aka Hu Qian)

One of the cinema events of the year! The only full-length movie by Chinese novelist turned filmmaker Hu Bo saw its legend enhanced when the 29-year-old artist killed himself after finishing his movie. Set in a northern Chinese industrial city, Hu’s nearly four-hour work focuses on four individuals—a bullied teen, a female classmate having an affair with a school administrator, a pensioner being forced out of his home, and a local gangster—whose dead-end lives overlap and intersect during the course of one day. Teeming with long tracking shots (Hungarian master Béla Tarr was Hu’s mentor), the film has a decidedly melancholy air that is alleviated by barbed humor. “One of the greatest recent films…A masterwork.” –The New Yorker. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 230 min. Special event pricing $12; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $9. No passes, twofers, or radio winners
