Mainland Noir: Chinese Crime Films
dir. Xin Yukun
In this unconventional and darkly comic depiction of the claustrophobia of provincial life, a burned body is discovered in a mountain village and the search is on to discover how it got there.

This debut feature from Xin Yukun uses a shifting timeline, multiple perspectives, and a large cast of idiosyncratic personalities to deepen the puzzle’s mystery. (2014, 119 min, digital)
