Filmed on the remote border between China and Tibet, Lu Chuan's critically acclaimed adventure is both an elegantly photographed portrait of a hidden world and a heartbreaking tale of courage in the face of insurmountable odds. Ga Yu (Zhang Lei) is a Beijing photojournalist who's determined to accompany a mountain patrol on a dangerous search for poachers ravaging the endangered antelope population. Throughout the course of their epic journey, the men are greeted by guns, ferocious storms, hidden quicksand, and the lingering shadow of death. "Filled with strange and horrible visions, it draws you in again and again, not with characters, who all remain at psychological remove, but with set pieces that distill the story's life-and-death struggle to its essence" (Manohla Dargis, The New York Times). In Mandarin and Tibetan with English subtitles. Includes French language and English and French subtitle options.
