This Tuesday night is gonna be an exciting one at Jianghu — join us (The World of Chinese, that is!) as we welcome freezing January with Woman Basketball Player No. 5 (女篮五号), a fantastically warming 1957 sports adventure, directed by the legendary Xie Jin. It’s got girls, rivalry, action, basketball, crushes, and even accordion singalongs. (Oh, we’ll be singing!)
Best yet, the bad guys are slanderously fiendish Americans, hurling abuse across the basketball court.
Don’t miss this fun, fast, and feisty feature — it’s a Chinese Douglas Sirk, a Socialist Karate Kid, featuring original subtitles and cheap cocktails in a classic Beijing siheyuan courtyard setting.
It doesn’t get much more awesome than this!
