Kaili Blues

Kaili Blues

With his dazzling 2015 debut feature KAILI BLUES, filmmaker, poet, and photographer Bi Gan established himself as one of the most exciting new voices in world cinema, earning comparisons to Andrei Tarkovsky and Apichatpong Weerasethakul. A dreamlike odyssey in which a doctor on a quest to find his brother’s abandoned child finds himself transported through the past and future, KAILI BLUES features as its centerpiece an astounding, forty-one-minute outdoor tracking shot that must be seen to be believed. The film is presented alongside Bi’s gorgeous 2012 short THE POET AND SINGER, which he considers a companion to the feature, and a new introduction by the filmmaker.

Limited engagement ends September 30
