Jia Zhang-Ke's "Still Life" opens in US Theatres : IFC NY : Jan 16 - 22

Nearly a year and a half since its premier at the Venice Film Festival (where it won the highest award
at the fest, the Golden Lion) Jia Zhang-Ke's poetic, beautiful, tragic and grandiose depiction of globalism
in the form of the Three Gorges Hydro Project colliding with every-day lives and the shifting, modernizing
world coming face-to-face with the rural traditions of mainland China - Finally! comes to domestic theatres:

Opening this week in New York City with a very limited nationwide theatrical run to follow. Again,
brought to our country by those fine and informed folks at the IFC. Many more words by me on
this near-incomparable piece of cinema to be found here:
