Ash is Purest White (15) – 2018, China/France, 150 mins, subs
Dir: Jia Zhangke
Cast: Tao Zhao, Fan Liao, Xu Zheng.
The year is 2001. Upon falling for small-time gangster Bin (Fan Liao), quick-witted dancer Qiao (Tao Zhao) becomes embroiled in a war between rival street gangs. Pulling out a gun to protect her boyfriend and serving five years behind bars for the act, Qiao embarks on a journey to rekindle her relationship with Bin once more. Jia Zhangke’s gloriously tragic drama is an arresting, complex gem – using this early 21st century story to echo the relentless tide of capitalism in China – and was nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes.
Doors open for fine wines and all manner of drinks at 7pm. Film at 8pm
