Movie Night: Farewell My Concubine

March 9, 2010
6:30 pm
 to 9:30 pm

Join us for a movie screening and dialogue

Considered by many to be one of the best epics of all time, Farewell My Concubine is a feast for the eyes and heart.  Spanning over 50 years, we follow the lives of two opera stars from their entry as young boys into the Peking Opera School in 1924 to their reunion in 1977.  The boys endure the rigorous and sometimes torturous training at the hands of Master Guan (Qi Lu) who molds their talents, preparing them for their life-long roles as a concubine and a king.  Douzi (Leslie Cheung), who’s role is that of the Concubine, is conditioned to live as a girl in order to perfect his role.  He develops a romantic love for Shitou (Fengyi Zhang), who can only return a fraternal love, choosing instead the beautiful Juxian (Gong Li), a prostitute that becomes his wife, driving Douzi into deep despair.
