Movie Night: The Emperor Visits the Hell

Come join us for another movie night We'll be watching  the historical drama "The Emperor Visits the Hell". Li Luo has taken three chapters of the Ming Dynasty novel Journey to the West (aka Monkey) and adapted the story of the short-term death of Emperor Li Shimin to the modern China of officials, bureaucrats and gangsters. The storytelling explores several layers of "reality," but coalesces into an image of China’s perennial absurdity: a new-old world where peace always breeds wealth.
