UK Premiere: The Song of Cotton

Dir Zhu Yuancheng
With Yan Bingyan, Wang Deshun, Ai Liya
Mandarin with EST
This thoughtful and moving tale follows a young woman who takes on a job as carer of an ageing boxer suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. The film explores, in a gently provocative manner, the different values of the three generations since the founding of the Republic of China, yet the characters find common ground by all having to make life-changing choices as they deal with inequality and life’s hardships.
