Beijing Festival Adds Restored Classics, World Cinema Choices

BJIFF completes 282 title line-up

HONG KONG – The Beijing International Film Festival which gets underway later this week (April 16-23, 2014) has completed its line-up with additional restored and classic movies and contemporary world cinema choices.

The additions take to 282 the total number of films set to screen and 176 the number that will play in its Beijing Film Panorama.

The five film ‘Restoration’ section is headed by 1928 silent film “Underground,” by British director Anthony Asquith, charting the triangular relationship of two men and a woman on London’s underground or Tube railway. Other titles include “Laborer’s Love,” “New Women,” “Spring in a Small Town,” and “Myriads of Lights.”

The festival has added a screening of “Giant,” bringing to three its selection of James Dean classics, alongside the previously announced “Rebel Without A Cause” and “East of Eden.” Also screening in the same ‘Classical Retrospective’ section is a trio of Guiseppe Tornatore titles “The Legend of 1900,” “Malena” and “Cinema Paradiso.”

The 34-title ‘Global View’ section includes Korean detective thriller “Cold Eyes,” India’s foreign-language Oscar-nominee “The Good Road” (pictured), Dutch prison documentary “Unit7,” and Norwegian-made road movie “Before Snowfall.”
