SCREENING

Life Without Principle

Ongoing

Hong Kong. Dir. Johnnie To. 2011, 107 mins. With Lau Ching-Wan. In his most remarkable and complex work since Election (2005), To’s latest follows three characters across three days, each affected by the murder of a local loan shark and the financial collapse caused by the Greek debt crisis. As their stories orbit and collide, the film unfolds as a critique of Hong Kong materialism and an investigation of the ways lives are shattered by global financial speculation.

Free with Museum admission. A First Look series pass, allowing the holder admission to the Museum and all First Look screenings for the run of the series, is available for $40. Order online or call 718 777 6800.
