2019 Chinese film So Long, My Son (地久天长) at Carnegie Mellon International Film Festival, March 27.



Tickets just went on sale for this year's Carnegie Mellon International Film Festival, which will feature the 2019 Chinese film So Long, My Son (地久天长) on March 27.
In the mid-1980s, two families work together in a factory in northern China. They are very close. So are their sons, who were born on the same day. But then a tragic accident pulls the families apart and, as China’s dramatic social transformation generates increasing inequalities, they follow very different paths both geographically and in economic terms. Will they ever be able to reconcile with one another and their shared but separating pasts? Moving backwards and forwards from the accident through four decades of Chinese history, acclaimed director Wang Xiaoshuai carefully constructs an epic, deeply moving drama of ordinary lives and severed connections in the midst of extraordinary social change.
Tickets for the 7:00 pm show are now available online. It will play at the McConomy Auditorium of Cohon University Center (map).
