BLACK COAL, THIN ICE

DIRECTOR: DIAO YINAN - CHINA

Haunted by a botched police investigation five years earlier, former policeman Zhang has retired to a distant mining town in Northern China in an attempt to drink his past away. But when a new string of murders unfold in strikingly familiar fashion to the old case, Zhang sees a chance to atone for the sins of his past. A one-man investigation team, he vows to unearth the brutal killer at all costs, and his journey takes him down a dark road from which there is no return. Winner of the Golden Bear for Best Film at the Berlin Film Festival, this surreal mix of Western pulp fiction and Eastern philosophical ruminations is “A salute to the classic Hollywood film noir—an exciting stylistic tour-de-force.”—The Hollywood Reporter
