Our WORLD OF WONG KAR WAI series begins with Days of Being Wild in a new 4k Restoration!

Three shows: Oct  7 - 9!

With his lush and sensual visuals, pitch-perfect soundtracks, and soulful romanticism, Wong Kar Wai has established himself as one of the defining auteurs of contemporary cinema. The first film in a loosely connected, ongoing cycle, DAYS OF BEING WILD is a ravishing, existential, dreamlike drift through the Hong Kong of the 1960s in which a band of wayward 20-somethings pull together and push apart in a cycle of frustrated desire.

Included in this three-part series are IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE and CHUNGKING EXPRESS, to be shown in the coming weeks.

"A hysterical, histrionic ode to cyber-punk fetishism, TETSUO owes as much to William Gibson as it does the body horror cinema of David Cronenberg & the stop-motion theatrics of Jan Svankmajer." - Screen Slate
