FILMSOC w/ WU CULTURE Week 9: SHANGHAI TRIAD- FREE PIZZA
6 May, 2016
Chisholm Theater (Babel Building)
This week we will be teaming up with the Wu Culture club to bring you:
Shanghai Triad (Zhang Yi Mou, 1995)
One of the last collaborations between fifth generation filmmaker Zhang Yi Mou and actress Gong Li, Shanghai Triad is set in the criminal underworld of 1930’s Shanghai, following the life of country boy Shuisheng, who is recruited by his uncle to serve a ganglord’s mistress.
When the Shuisheng's uncle and the gang's several other members die during a rival gang's unsuccessful attempt on Tang's life, the latter retreats to a remote small island, taking both Bijou and Shuisheng with him and thinking of revenge.
In eight bloody days, a previously naive country boy loses his innocence and is drawn into the dark world of Chinese triads.
As always, there will be free pizza and drinks, so bring your friends and we look forward to seeing you there!
