Art Waves: Friday, October 4th at 9 PM

Tune in this Friday at 9pm for an in-depth discussion with director Jia Zhangke about his new film A Touch of Sin, winner of Best Screenplay at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. This film follows four ordinary citizens from four corners of China who each finds that violence may be the only solution in a system fraught with corruption, oppression and convulsive change. Director Jia will discuss these pressing issues in China today, as well as the creative process behind the film and the social function of cinema. Hosted in English and Mandarin Chinese by Xueli Wang.
