Mountains May Depart

Director: Jia Zhang-ke • China

In this penetrating dissection of modern China from storyteller extraordinaire Jia Zhang-ke (A Touch of Sin), a young woman chooses to marry a wealthy capitalist over a coal miner and names her firstborn son “Dollar.” Across two continents, three chapters, and 25 years reaching into the near future, we watch one scattered family chase a vision of success that remains heartbreakingly out of reach.
