    1994. China. Directed by Jiang Yue. Young students from across the country are invited to Beijing to perform a play written by future Nobel Laureate Gao Xingjian. The film documents their feverishly intense rehearsals, the phenomenal public reception of their performances, and their desperate attempts to sustain their euphoria and pursue artistic careers in Beijing. With its heartbreaking climactic performance, this is a penetrating reflection on the transformative effects of art (both theater and documentary film), and a portrait of a generation's quest to find fulfillment in 1990s China. Courtesy of Jiang Yue. In Mandarin; English subtitles. 140 min.
