The Barossa Film Club presents a film by Hong Kong Director Wong Kar Wai “2046”. This is a companion piece to “In the Mood For Love”.
Chow is a writer. He thinks he writes about the future, but it really is the past. In his novel, a mysterious train leaves for 2046 every once in a while. Everyone goes there has the same intention — to recapture lost memories. It is said that in 2046, nothing ever changes. Nobody knows for sure whether it is true, because nobody who goes there has ever come back — except for one. He was there. He chose to leave. He wanted to change.
Andrew Sarris, New York Times film critic, commented in 2007, “Quite simply an incomparably sublime work of art, a triumph of lyricism over narrative in the cinema, and the most exquisite homage to the beauty of women it has ever been my privilege to witness on the screen.”
The evening will commence at 7.30 pm on Friday 15th April at the Wine Centre at Faith College, with a short film, then, after a break for refreshments, the main feature will screen. Membership is obtainable at the door. Details are available on the Film Club Facebook page or on the website, or ring 8564 8225.
