A New Old Play 18

Part of Chinese Cinema Project
Qiu Jiongjiong , Hong Kong/France, 2021, 179m.

One evening in the 1980s, Qiu Fu (Yi Sicheng), a leading clown-role actor in 20th-century Sichuan opera, is killed in an accident and must reluctantly set off for the Ghost City under escort of two underworld officials. Along the way, he meets old friends. As they recall the past, earthly scenes creep into the mists of the underworld.


The screening on Saturday 19 November 2022 is introduced by Tony Rayns, who also hosts an after-screening online Q&A with the director Qiu Jiongjiong. The screening on Saturday 4 February is introduced by Victor Fan and starts with a pre-recorded video from the leading actor Yi Sicheng.


This is a part of the exhibition initiative Chinese Cinema Project presented by Plus One Films, supported by The Garden Cinema. It aims to showcase works from emerging and under-represented Chinese filmmakers via regular screenings. New and classic, feature and shorts - we only show good films.
