Ice Poison (Bing du)
Location: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Midi Z. 2014, 95 mins. Digital projection. With Wu Ke-xi, Wang Shin-hong. With crop prices weak, a Burmese farmer pawns his cow for an old motorcycle so that his son can take passengers to town for extra income. The new business is fruitless until the son meets a young woman who is involved with the risky but lucrative business of transporting crystal meth. This meticulously executed and mesmerizing story captures the changes occurring in Myanmar under capitalism. The film was Taiwan’s official entry to the 2015 Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film.
