Categories: Drama, Foreign, Festivals

In this emotionally taut drama, schoolteacher Li Qiming travels from his rural village to the city of Wuhan, determined to fulfill his dying wife's last wish to see their only son one last time. He instead meets his estranged daughter Yanhong, a karaoke escort, and must come to terms with the tenuous future of his family. She introduces him to her boyfriend, an older man and the karaoke bar owner; her father also meets a sympathetic policeman who agrees to help find his missing son. Director Wang Chao uses the main character to represent the painful reality of thousands of parents who have lost contact with their children through the rural exodus and political upheaval that has transformed modern China. Winner of the Un Certain Regard at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival, LUXURY CAR (JIANG CHENG XIA RI) is presented in Mandarin with English subtitles. This film is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection, presented by the Global Film Initiative.
