“The High Life” & “The Stool Pigeon” at SF International Film Festival
April 21, 2011 - May 5, 2011
The 54th San Francisco International Film Festival returns April 21-May 5 for two weeks of cinematic excellence, combining more than 100 unique programs of the finest independent, documentary and international film with a range of marquee premieres, spectacular live events and tributes to world-renowned talent.
The Festival will present a number of Chinese films, which CHSA is proudly co-sponsoring, including the US premiere of Zhao Dayong’s The High Life, set on the shabby outskirts of Guangzhou, where everyone is on the move but nobody is getting anywhere,and Dante Lam’s The Stool Pigeon, a crime thriller that expands the genre with emotional complexity and existential angst.
