Life After Life (Zhi fan ye mao) | Zhang Hangyi | China, 2016

Film - Feature | April 14 | 4 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Produced by Jia Zhangke, this evocative and poetic ghost story depicts a rapidly disappearing way of life in rural China with a gorgeous visual sensibility and subtly wry humor.

Coupling a desaturated palette of browns and grays with surprising images that feature goats stuck in trees or a giant boulder that moves sideways, Zhang's film has a lyrical sensibility that sits comfortably alongside its criticism of a society that is laying waste to a particular kind of life.
