Upcoming Programs:


May 3, 2018 | 6 p.m. : Hero

Directed by Zhang Yimou, 2002 (2004 U.S. release), 99 minutes

With supernatural skill, a nameless soldier embarks on a mission of revenge. Now, to achieve the justice he seeks, he must take on the empire’s most ruthless assassins and reach the enemy he has sworn to defeat.

Curatorial Assistant for East Asian Arts Lynne Pearson will introduce the film, highlighting the connections to CAM’s exciting special exhibition Terracotta Army: Legacy of the First Emperor of China. The film’s plot centers on the attempted assassination of the King of the Qin state, Qin Shi Huang, who would eventually become the China’s First Emperor and order the construction of the terracotta army.

Nominated for Best Foreign Film at the 2003 Academy Awards, Hero features Jet Li, Tony Leung, Zhang Ziyi, and Donnie Yen.
