Film Screening: "An Elephant Sitting Still" (Hu Bo, 2018, 230 min, China, Mandarin w/ English subtitles, Color, DCP) Sure to be remembered as a landmark in Chinese cinema, the late Hu Bo's first and final feature film combines long-take heroics with a deeply felt series of interwoven stories concerning characters young and old, joined by a shared longing to escape their suffocating lives. "One of the greatest recent films...A masterwork." --Richard Brody, The New Yorker
