Long Day’s Journey Into Night (Bi Gan, 2019, 140 min, China, Mandarin w/ English subtitles, Color, 2D DCP)

Bi Gan follows up his knockout debut, Kaili Blues, with this noir-tinged stunner about a lost soul (Jue Huang) on a quest to find a missing woman from his past (Tang Wei). China’s biggest arthouse hit of all time, the film took in more than $40 million dollars in its opening weekend at the domestic box office. Shown in 2D.


— Introduced by Prof. Ralph Litzinger (Cultural Antropology)


A flat-out masterpiece. If Bi Gan’s goal was to reinvent the language of film, he might have achieved that goal.” – Jordan Ruimy, The Playlist

“Critic’s Pick! Intoxicating. Feels like dreaming with your eyes open.” – Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
