1:00 at Jacob Burns Film Center [Program & Tix]

A BRIGHTER SUMMER DAY
Yang | 1991 | Taiwan | 237m
*Hosted by Apichatpong Weerasethakul
“The Unlimited Possibilities of Cinema” 1:00 at JBFC

“One of those movies that, by slow accretion of detail and bold dramatic vision, disclose the structure and feeling of an entire world. In every aspect of technique this film is a work of absolute mastery. Its imaginative authority and the scale of its achieved ambition make it not just a wonderful movie but also an essential piece of modern cinema. It is a crowded, complex crime story that is also a tale of sexual awakening and an understated exercise in kitchen-sink realism. In short — or rather at mesmerizing, necessary length — this film has everything, and is well worth a day of your life.”
A.O. Scott, The New York Times [Read More]
