The Farewell (Mandarin with subtitles)
30 June, 2020 @ 19:30 - 21:30
Free to members - £4.00 for guests
This bitter-sweet Chinese tragi-comedy perfectly balances emotion and humour.
Chinese-American woman, Billi, returns to China when her beloved grandmother is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Billi struggles with the family decision to keep the knowledge of her terminal condition from the grandmother and to stage a wedding so that they can all see her one last time.
Described as ‘captivating’, it is a beautiful portrayal of a long farewell, giving an insight into the differences between western and eastern culture. The film has featured highly in the 2020 awards’ season.
