An Elephant Sitting Still (2018)

Reports of an equable elephant in a remote zoo who sits oblivious to every happening in the world pass like secret knowledge among a small-time crook, two students and a pensioner who become increasingly, desperately entangled in each other’s lives. A magisterial portrait of social isolation, novelist-turned-filmmaker Hu Bo’s first feature is also that rare cinematic gift—a masterpiece on debut.

DCP, color, in Mandarin with English subtitles, 230 min. Director/Screenwriter: Hu Bo. Cast: Zhang Yu, Peng Yuchang, Wang Yuwen.
