A Touch Of Sin

Here’s another chance to see one of the most acclaimed films of 2013! Jia Zhangke’s new work marks a radical change of pace for the acclaimed Chinese director of Still Life and The World. A Touch of Sin is an angry contemporary drama that re-creates four under-reported but actual incidents from recent Chinese history—two killing sprees, one murder, and a suicide—all involving dissatisfied or exploited workers. “An explosive indictment of the Chinese economic miracle and its brutalizing effect on ordinary Chinese life.” –Film Comment.
