An Elephant Sitting Still (Hu Bo, 2018, 230 min, China, Mandarin w/ English subtitles, Color, DCP)

— Introduced by Prof. Eileen Cheng-yin Chow (Asian & Middle Eastern Studies)

Sure to be remembered as a landmark in Chinese cinema, the late Hu Bo’s first and final feature film combines long-take heroics with a deeply felt series of interwoven stories concerning characters young and old, joined by a shared longing to escape their suffocating lives.


“One of the greatest recent films…A masterwork.” –Richard Brody, The New Yorker
