Still image from the film Black Snow
Winner of the Silver Bear Award at the 1990 Berlin International Film Festival, Black Snow follows a young, semi-literate punk named Li, who is released from labor camp and tries to rebuild his life. In the backstreets and nightclubs of 1990s Beijing, his attempts to make good are continually challenged. Li is of a lost generation of young people and he struggles to find ‘a new ideal, a new belief,’ on the fringe of the black market and allure of his old neighborhood gangs. In Mandarin Chinese with English subtitles. Director Xie Fei is scheduled to be present. (2K DCP Presentation)
