Q&A with Sylvia Chang following the 7:15pm screening on Saturday, May 19.
Into her fourth decade in the film industry—displaying a longevity almost unknown for actresses in Chinese-language cinema, or for that matter anywhere else—survivor Chang shows a unique understanding of how times change, a subject at the heart of this sensitive story of a teacher near retirement (Chang) drawn into a squabble with her mother’s husband’s first wife (Wu Yanshu) over where to bury the man’s remains, all while observing the professional and romantic travails of her TV producer daughter (Lang Yueting). This is the New York premiere of Love Education.
Love Education is screening as part of the Sylvia Chang series.
