Part of Film 2019 series Intimate Epics
Directed by Hu Bo | 2018

With Peng Yuchang, Zhang Yu, Wang Yuwen

The first and only feature from novelist-turned-filmmaker Hu Bo, who tragically took his own life at age 29, is already being heralded as a modern classic of Chinese cinema. An Elephant Sitting Still charts the intertwining fates of a group of desperate and dispossessed souls on a journey through the industrial landscape of northern China, in search of a mythical elephant. Full of revelatory silences and mesmerizing long takes, this bleak, beautiful existential odyssey reaches for—and achieves—the transcendent.
