1115 El Centro St
South Pasadena, California 91030
The South Pasadena Public Library is pleased to partner with the South Pasadena Chinese American Club to host its Chinese American Film Series in the Library Community Room on Friday, May 4th at 7:00 p.m. Director Yimou Zhang’s Golden Globe and Academy Award nominated film “Hero” (2002) will be screened. The recipient of many international awards for Christopher Doyle’s hauntingly beautiful cinematography, this action-adventure film was described by Tim Appelo in the L.A. Weekly as “an epic, evocative of another epoch and of landscapes beyond time.” The film stars the incomparable Jet Li, Ziyi Zhang (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”, “House of Flying Daggers”), and Tony Chiu-Wai Leung, winner of a best actor prize at the Cannes Film Festival for “In the Mood for Love” (2000).
The event is free and open to the public. The PG-13 rated film will be shown in Mandarin with English subtitles, and runs 1 hour 47 minutes.
