In the Face of Demolition

Wei lou chun xiao

Directed by Li Tie
Hong Kong, 1953


A striking and enjoyable film on the theme of the solidarity of the urban poor, Li Tie’s In the Face of Demolition takes place mostly in an apartment building inhabited by people clutching at the lower rungs of the middle class.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
