Ju Dou

For one night only, Miami Film Festival presents this digitally restored retrospective screening of JU DOU in honor of GONG LI Month at Tower Theater!

From renowned director Yimou Zhang and starring the incomparable Gong Li, JU DOU was nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes Film Festival and for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards.

A woman married to the brutal and infertile owner of a dye mill in rural China conceives a boy with her husband’s nephew but is forced to raise her son as her husband’s heir without revealing his parentage in this circular tragedy.

We invite you to a post-screening gathering and conversation moderated by the Executive Director of the Miami Film Festival, Jaie Laplante. Join us and celebrate Gong Li and her starring role in the highly anticipated April 29th release of SATURDAY FICTION.
