Sunday May 1st: Editor’s Pick

7:15 at Museum of the Moving Image [Program & Tix]



WINTER VACATION
Li Hongqi | 2010 | 91m
“Tales from the New Chinese Cinema”
7:15 at Museum of Moving Image

“Filming a half dozen (fictional) school-age kids, two toddlers, and a smattering of adults during the last days of a winter vacation in a collapsing rural town, Li not only positions each figure in stylized poses, but distills conversation into an endless series of pauses and dry recitations. Among other things, in Li’s hands, duration becomes a comedic tool, the director milking the simple length of time it takes characters to do nothing for aching laughter.”
Andrew Schenker, Slant
