Part of their series “Tales from the New Chinese Cinema”

Sunday April 30th at 5 PM

Address: 36-01 35 Avenue (at 37 Street) Astoria, NY 11106

Description: As urbanization in China advances at a breakneck pace, Chinese cities teeter on the brink of mayhem. One man dances in the middle of traffic while another tries to jump from a bridge before dozens of onlookers. Pigs run wild on a highway while dignitaries swim in a polluted river. Hua Hsu of the Atlantic calls it “gripping, stirring, occasionally shocking“. Admission is $10 for adults, $7.50 senior citizens and college students with valid ID, and $5 children ages three to eighteen. Admission is free for Museum members and children under three.
