Our take

Following yesterday’s showing of A Touch of Sin we turn to an essential portrait of its filmmaker, the great 6th Generation Chinese auteur Jia Zhangke. Made by another world-renowned filmmaker, Walter Salles (Central Station), it offers rare insight and access by traveling with Jia to his hometown.
