Cinema Under The Stars Presents Shun Li And The Poet

August 17, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Cinema Under The Stars Presents Shun Li And The Poet

Join Global Change Multi-Media’s Cinema Under The Stars summer film series on Saturday, August 17 for a presentation of the 2011 award-winning film, Shun Li And The Poet.

A beautiful and elegant story of friendship and overcoming. The film unfolds in a poetic dialogue between two different cultures, and takes the audience on an inner and geographical journey around the friendship of two people.

Heart warming. Moving. Intriguing. Winner of the European Parliament Lux Prize in 2012.

Shun Li, played by Chinese actress Zhao Tao, is a young woman earning wages in the outskirts of Rome in hopes to bring her son to Italy. After being transferred to Chioggia to work at a local pub, she meets Slavic immigrant and fisherman Bepi, nicknamed by his friends “the Poet.” A tender, delicate friendship develops between Shun Li and Bepi.

Their innocent friendship is met with gossip and resistance, but Shun Li and Bepi find strength in their bond and transcend this opposition. Together they bridge two very different, yet not at all distant cultures.

“A poignant story…striking cinematography! A film that doesn’t shy away.” – The New York Times

“This just might be a masterpiece!” – Liberazzione

“Rapturous! Exquisite!” – Allisa Simon, Variety
