Chan Is Missing also screened on Friday, March 11 with Wayne Wang and Oliver S. Wang in conversation.

Touted as the first all Chinese American feature film, Wang’s irreverent, refreshingly authentic movie follows two cab drivers searching San Francisco’s Chinatown for an elusive flimflam man. “A small, whimsical treasure of a film” (Roger Ebert).

Theater capacity is limited for this screening.

Face masks covering nose and mouth (without valves) are required at all times. We strongly recommend that all visitors choose N95, KN95, or surgical masks.

Mali,
1975,
(88 mins)

New Digital Restoration

Cissé’s recently restored first feature-length film, “the eternal story of a young girl who is raped, becomes pregnant, and is then abandoned[,] is agonizingly sad. . . . [The Young Girl] also represents the emergence of an absolutely singular cinematic composition” (Frédéric Bonnaud, La Biennale di Venezia).

Theater capacity is limited for this screening.

Face masks covering nose and mouth (without valves) are required at all times. We strongly recommend that all visitors choose N95, KN95, or surgical masks.
