August Movie Night

"Blind Mountain"

A young woman who hopes to relieve her parents of their debts travels with two men to a mountain village. She thinks their purpose is to buy herbs to be sold elsewhere; “Blind Mountain” is the story of what really happens. The young woman is sold as a bride to a farm family, sold and bought as casually as if she were a pig. Her resistance to her fate is the driving force of the movie. A New York Times article describes “Blind Mountain” as “the kind of story that, for the most part, tends to be drowned out by upbeat reports about China’s economic growth.” The movie, says the Times, serves as “a reminder that art keeps the truth alive far better than the news.”
