Chinese Film Screening: Black Coal, Thin Ice 白日焰火

Time: Friday, 20.04.2018, 4 -7 PM
Venue: Unioninkatu 38 F211

Black Coal, Thin Ice (白日焰火) is a 2014 Chinese thriller film written and directed by Diao Yinan. It tells the story of an ex cop and his ex partner deciding to follow up on investigation of a series of murders that ended their careers and shamed them, when identical murders begin again. The film won the Golden Bear award and Best Actor (Liao Fan) at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival.

The screening has English subtitles.

No advanced registration needed. But we do have limited chairs in the venue, so first come first served.

This screening is part of the course “Chinese Film Culture: Series of Screening and Lectures”, hosted by the Confucius Institute at University of Helsinki. There’ll be a brief introduction before the screening, as well as a short lecture and discussion afterwards all conducted in English. The event is for free and open to the public, but please note that whoever attends also needs to respect rules at the University. No food or colored drinks are allowed in the classroom.
