In my continuing series of posts where I wish that there was a cinema venue like Melbourne’s ACMI in Sydney, I’m going to enviously link to their showcase of films by Zhang Yimou starring his early muse, Gong Li.
Here are all the details at ACMI’s site.It’s a great list of films — here’s what’s on show, with links to our reviews where we have them:
- Coming Home (2014) — their newest collaboration.
- The Curse of the Golden Flower (2006)
- Shanghai Triad (1995)
- To Live (1994)
- The Story of Qiu Ju (1992)
- Raise the Red Lantern (1991)
- Ju Dou (1990)
- Red Sorghum (1987)
Readers unfamiliar with Gong Li’s body of work might find John’s piece from 2008 interesting: Gong Li — Her Brilliant Career.
Screening start this Friday March 6, and continue through March 15. See ACMI’s site for more details and to buy tickets, lucky Melburnians!
