Ash Is Purest White

Ash Is Purest White

Also on Curzon Home Cinema

Director Jia Zhang-ke (A Touch of Sin, Mountains May Depart) brings astonishing visuals to stories of modern China, from aspirational gangsters to coal miners.

In his latest, Ash is Purest White, Qiao (Tao Shao) romantically sacrifices herself when her boyfriend is facing a prison term. Emerging to find her beau otherwise engaged and the country she knew transformed by capitalism, she heads out, bent on revenge and self-discovery.

Full of amazing set pieces and emblematic moments of modern Chinese life, as well as deadpan humour, this is glorious and wicked satire.
