One of the most talked about films at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, An Elephant Sitting Still is an intense epic drama sure to be remembered as a landmark in Chinese cinema. Director HU Bo’s first and last piece (he ended his life October, 2017) is an unmistakably masterpiece.

The story links together the lives of a number of protagonists, narrating the course of one single, tension-filled day from dawn to dusk, and along the way, painting a portrait of a society marked by selfishness.
