Weekly Events: Timber Gang in Ann Arbor & Fortune Teller in Minneapolis

Saturday, April 7th at 7pm

"Timber Gang" (dir. Yu Guangyi)

Address: Angell Hall, Auditorium A 435 South State St., Ann Arbor, MI

Description: Yu Guangyi’s stunning debut explores a grueling winter amongst loggers in Northeast China as they employ traditional practices through one last, fateful expedition. Armed with a digital camera and survival gear, Yu Guangyi spent months filming the lumberjacks of his hometown, offering a privileged peek into some exceedingly harsh lives (Neil Young, Jigsaw Lounge). A lasting testament to disappearing traditions, Timber Gang “is a fascinating glimpse at a rare way of life that few will ever witness.” (Ain’t It Cool News)
