Coming Attractions with Asian Film Archive

16.02.21

Before establishing himself as a global force, Jia Zhangke made Xiao Wu in 1997. Produced on a shoestring budget, guerilla-style, and packed with a cast of non-professional actors, the film is now a milestone in Asian cinema. ⁠ ⁠

Xiao Wu is screening at Asian Film Archive along with Nasir, a stirring drama from India. AFA’s Viknesh and Kay Wee talk about these films, along with insightful artist conversations from their ongoing State of Motion programme.⁠
