"A long, sad, moving swan song." KimStim has debuted the full-length official US trailer for Hu Bo's highly acclaimed Chinese drama An Elephant Sitting Still, which is finally getting a theatrical release starting in March. This is Hu Bo's first & final film, as he tragically took his own life after finishing the film. This premiered at the Berlin Film Festival last year, where it won the FIPRESCI Prize and a Best First Feature "Special Mention", and it has also played at numerous other festivals including New Directors/New Films in NYC, plus the Sydney and Edinburgh Film Festivals. The film actually runs nearly 4 hours in total, and tells a story spanning one full day in a small rural Chinese town, linking their interactions and following various characters throughout the area. The focus is on bullying and the way people affect each other and treat each other. Starring Yuchang Peng, Yu Zhang, Uvin Wang, and Congxi Li. This is a must see for cinephiles. ›››
