New Jersey Festival Screening of:
N+N - Yan Chi Lai (Hong Kong, Hong Kong) In this charming, heartfelt feature film from Hong Kong, a wise grandpa and his witty young granddaughter walk hand in hand, planting bamboo shoots as they go, while their own home in a rural village is being torn down to give way to a high-speed railway. In the course of their journey, they meet others whose lives are also jeopardized by this so-called development. Their meditative quest is inspired by their determination to hold onto the city's collective memory and to honor every living tree. In Cantonese, subtitled. 2014; 94 min. Co-sponsored by the Rutgers University Centers for Global Advancement and International Affairs (GAIA Centers) and the Confucius Institute of Rutgers University!
