Phyllis Wattis Theater


Noted as cinematically prophetic in its narration of China during its post-Tiananmen Square era, Black Snow accounts the life of a young man recently discharged from prison. The film's lurking handheld camera visually presents realistic footage of a man destined for the past from which he left behind.


Xie Fei, 1989, 99 min.
