Pacific Film Archive presents UNKNOWN PLEASURES: The Films of Jia Zhangke. Viewers wishing to understand China’s vast changes during the last decade, and those seeking arguably the most important, critically acclaimed director of our era, should start in one place: the films of Jia Zhangke. Jia’s films contemplate a China perpetually reinventing itself, and the people left
behind in the transition. The PFA’s retrospective surveys the observational, highly original work of this contemporary master.
This series is presented in conjunction with the BAM exhibition Mahjong: Contemporary Chinese Art from the Sigg Collection.
Presented in conjunction with the Center for Asian American Media, with the generous support of the Consortium for the Arts and the Center for Chinese Studies at UC Berkeley.
