Odyssey Film Club: ASH IS PUREST WHITE d. Zhangke Jia, 2018 presented by Screen25 Cinema at Harris Academy South Norwood (29 APR 19:45):
From acclaimed Chinese auteur Jia Zhangke comes the violent tale of a couple, Qiao and Bin, who run into trouble with the law after Qiao is jailed for shielding her boyfriend from attackers with an unlicensed gun. The catch? Bin is a mob boss himself.
Drawing on contemporary jianghu (‘volatile society’) and wuxia (‘martial heroes’) culture, ASH IS PUREST WHITE is as poetic as it is gritty, crafting human relationships that allure and repulse in equal measure.
