Ash is Purest White [江湖儿女]
Directed By: Zhangke Jia
2018 / Mandarin / 136 min
This noir-esque feature narrates human struggle against the backdrop of a rapidly transforming China: a staple theme of Jia’s signature style. Ash overflows with references to classic Chinese action cinema but is set in an aggressively contemporary China where fiction and nonfiction both contain parts of the truth.
