Two weeks ago, we showed “The Winter of Sanmao” to a packed house at Jianghu Jiuba. It was incredible. I got a little tipsy, and CCTV published three hard-hitting stories. (“Laughter was waged,” they wrote. “Outside, wind just started to moan. Inside, it was common to hear people laughing!” Oh, and my introduction to the film? “Full of satirical humor and surging passion.” Now that’s an event!)
Sexy songs that became a city’s anthems.
Sexy stars that won a country.
Wild visions and real footage of pre-liberation Shanghai.
An ending that’ll just crush you.
All this, and discount drinks and free admission too!
