CAAM is pleased to partner with The Global Film Initiative (GFI) to present Global Lens @ Great Star Theater, an event of GFI’s Arthouse Revival program, a screening of three award-winning Chinese films from the Global Lens Collection on Saturday, December 1st at the historic Great Star Theater.

The featured films include Director Peng Tao’s third feature, THE CREMATOR (AKA FEN SHI REN), GETTING HOME (LUO YE GUI GEN) by Director Yang Zhang, and STOLEN LIFE (SHEN SI JIE) by Director Li Shaohong. Arthouse Revival is a project designed to support the revival of independent arthouse cinema nationwide through dynamic presentations of the critically-acclaimed Global Lens film series at iconic theaters such as the Great Star – a 500-seat landmark theater and opera-house credited with introducing Hong Kong cinema to the U.S. in the mid-1960s.
