EXTRAS MOUNTAINS MAY DEPART Directed by Jia Zhangke Starring: Zhao Tao, Zhang Yi.
Mainland master Jia Zhangke scales new heights with Mountains May Depart. The film is both an intimate drama and a decadesspanning epic about how China’s capitalist experiment has affected the lives of one splintered family, leaping in time from the past to the present to the speculative near-future. Jia’s new film is an intensely moving study of how China’s economic book and the culture of materialism it has spawned has affected the bonds of family, tradition, and love.
