Winter Vacation (Hanjia)
Introduced by series curator, Cheng-Sim LimDir. Li Hongqi. 2010, 91 mins. Digital projection. With Bai Junjie, Bai Jinfeng, Bao Lei, Wang Hui, Xie Ying, Zhang Naqi. Slackers in Inner Mongolia meet the poetry of the absurd. In a dreary little northern town, kids have nothing to do . . . while the adults are wily or apathetic. Poet/filmmaker Li Hongqi effortlessly leads the viewer through a series of breathtaking tableaux in which tension accumulates and then releases in unexpected, and often wickedly funny, ways.
Free with Museum admission.
