The Movies

  • Piano in a Factory: A man goes to unusual lengths to prove
    his love for his daughter in this family drama. Chen Guilin is a man who
    loves music and plays accordion in an amateur band, but Chen can’t
    support himself on what he makes as a musician, and his job in a steel
    mill isn’t about to make him rich. Now his wife, Xiao Ju, returns home
    to file a formal divorce, as well as custody of their daughter. To
    retain his daughter, he must give her a piano. Chen exhausts all means:
    borrowing money from his friends and even attempting to steal a piano,
    but all his attempts fail. Despite these challenges, Chen always
    maintains an optimistic outlook. Finally, he decides to produce a steel
    piano with his friends.
  • Storm Warriors: An epic battle is played out by warriors
    harnessing the power of the elements in this effects-laden fantasy
    /action drama Hong Kong film. The brave Lord Nameless is the leader of a
    band of heroic warriors. Lord Godless, his nemesis, captures Nameless
    in a daring raid, imprisons his soldiers and takes control of his land.
    As things look hopeless, three of Nameless’s allies set out to free him:
    Cloud (Aaron Kwok), Wind (Ekin Cheng) and Chu Chu (Yan Tang). As Cloud
    absorbs what he’s learned from Nameless and Wind is tutored in combat by
    Wicked, can they fend off Godless and his cronies?
  • Golden Times: Fueling China’s economic boom is the mass
    migration of workers from the countryside to cities. This leaves a
    special population of 58 million ‘left-behind children’ in the care of
    their old, and mostly illiterate grandparents. What should have been
    carefree years for these children can only be characterized by weariness
    from studying and burdensome farm work. Teacher Fang and police officer
    Sun Dayang realize that the affections and instructions of parents
    during the early years are irreplaceable. Getting support from the local
    government, they set up a “Home for Left-Behind Children,” which helps
    the kids from this population attain a healthy and loving environment in
    the hands of the community.
  • Jasmine Women: Starring Zhang Ziyi (House of Flying Daggers),
    Joan Chen and Jiang Wen, Jasmine Women tells the story of one family’s
    struggle to overcome its tragic history, as each daughter repeats the
    mistakes of her mother. Director Hou Yong sets his film in the 1930’s,
    50’s and 80’s against the backdrop of an ever-changing Shanghai and
    tells the stories of Mo, Li and Hua, which when translated to English
    together means Jasmine Flower.
  • 2Become1: Bingo Leung, an advertising executive, has always
    lived a carefree life that includes guarding her turf in the office,
    dating, and gossiping with her three girlfriends. One day, she finds a
    lump in her left breast. Everything begins to fall apart as she tries to
    cope with the loss of femininity in a series of bittersweet events.
    With the help of a happy-go-lucky Doctor V and a shy but talented
    teenager Sing, Bingo begins to find new meanings in her turmoil and the
    will to face her own demons.
  • Space Dream: The son of a peasant family, Zhang Tiancong (Liu
    Zhibing) is a veteran member of the first generation of Chinese
    astronauts but, now in his 40s, has yet to be selected for a space
    mission. Meanwhile, his family, including his daughter and ace military
    pilot Siyu (Jiang Ruijia), continues to support his quickly fading
    dream. Tiancong’s last shot is a mission is of exceptional importance;
    it involves docking spaceship Wentian I with a satellite to establish
