Bi Gan’s brilliant directorial debut—which has collected prizes at the Locarno Film Festival and Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards—is an audacious work that announces a major new filmmaking talent. Country doctor Chen Sheng sets out on a train journey to search for his brother’s abandoned child, only to find himself in a dreamlike world where the boundaries between past, present, and future—and between fantasy and reality—are porous. This remarkable visual achievement, which feels as singular and alien as the films of the great Apichatpong Weerasethakul, was shot in the mining village Kaili, the director’s birthplace, and incorporates poetry he has been writing since he was a teenager.
