Soi Cheang, 119min, DCP, color, in Mandarin with English subtitles UCLA Film & Television Archive is proud to join a distinguished consortium of American film institutions in Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C. to present the China Onscreen Biennial (COB), returning for a third edition in 2016. Journey to the West gets the full blockbuster treatment in this deliriously spirited retelling starring Aaron Kwok as the titular mythological anti-hero pressed into service by the Goddess of Mercy to protect the monk Xuanzang (Feng Shaofeng) on his mission to retrieve Buddhist sutras from India. Gong Li has a devilish time as the monk's evil nemesis, the White Bone Demon. This program will begin with a 30-minute group meditation session by MARC Staff in the Billy Wilder Theater.
