A Century of Chinese Cinema – BFI Southbank (2014)

I heard about this online thanks to Pimp Sheui bar on Twitter and as I enjoyed last year’s Action, HK Style at QAGOMA and even travelled interstate to see one weekend of the programming I thought I should let more people know about it so they get the same opportunity.

The program goes for five months rather than the three that QAGOMA had, it does seem to have less movies on per day, but they are on every day. If you are working in London and had the time to spend I would definitely recommend attending at least a few sessions.
