'Til Madness Do Us Part

2013, 228 mins, China
Directed by Wang Bing 王兵

Mandarin Chinese with English subtitles

For twelve months of the year, fifty men are locked on one floor of an isolated asylum, having little contact with the outside world, even medical staff. Each has been committed for different reasons: some have psychological problems, some have killed people, others have upset certain local officials. But once inside, they share the same empty life, walking along the same wire-fenced courtyard, looking for comfort and humanity.

This screening will be followed by a short informal discussion.

This film is part of Asia and the Pacific Screens Season Six: Borderlands, presented by the Australian Centre on China in the World.
