About

See the most extensive presentation of Chinese cinema ever screened in the UK at BFI Southbank's Century of Chinese Cinema.

A wealth of martial arts films, social dramas and costume epics are screened under five distinct strands over a four-month period at the British Film Institute's South Bank home.

Firstly, there will be a look at The Golden Age: a grouping featuring classics of Shanghai cinema from the 1930 and 1940s. This will be followed by a chance to examine big-screen works created in the aftermath of the formation of the People's Republic of China from the late 1940s until the mid-1960s.

Fans of kung fu will enjoy the showcase titled: Swordsmen, Gangsters and Ghosts, which takes in Bruce Li classics and Ang Lee's popular Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon among others.

More recent hits are explored through New Waves, which looks into films of the 1980s and 1990s; while New Directions features contemporary films such as Wong Kar-Wai's In the Mood for Love.
