SCREENING

Nina Wu

Saturday, Feb 5 at 6:00 PM

Location: Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Midi Z. Taiwan, Malaysia, Myanmar. 2019, 103 mins. DCP. In Mandarin with English subtitles. With Wu Ke-Xi, Sung Yu-Hua, Hsia Yu-Chiao, Shih Ming-Shuai. After eight years toiling in bit parts, aspiring actress Nina Wu finally lands a leading role in a spy thriller set in the 1960s. The shoot is challenging—explicit sex scenes; an impatient and insensitive director—but the film proves to be a professional and critical breakthrough. Nevertheless, Nina’s psychological resolve begins to crack. In light of two family crises, she rushes back to her family home, where she dreams of rekindling a close relationship with her childhood friend Kiki, while suffering from visions of a mysterious woman stalking and attacking her. As Nina clings to memories of happier times, she seems to be repressing one crucial memory. A Film Movement release.
