Wo de peng you

All Tomorrow’s Parties
China during the 1990 Asian Games. A cinema screening is taking place in a factory in the evening. The janitor distributes the limited tickets while a shy poet waits for someone. A gently told, nostalgic portrait of a bygone era. Director Zhang Dalei, who won the 2021 Silver Bear Jury Prize for the best short film with Xia wu guo qu le yi ban (Day Is Done), also has a series screening in Berlinale Series this year.
