An Elephant Sitting Still

Narrative (Feature)

In acclaimed novelist turned filmmaker, Hu Bo's, first and last feature film, AN ELEPHANT STANDING STILL, there is said to be an elephant who lives in the Chinese city of Manzhouli and sits there motionless, ignoring the world around it. Along the course of this masterful epic, we are given an omniscient glimpse into the intricate complexities of the inner worlds of four disparate characters over the course of a single day in modern China. A fictional surreality is rendered acutely poignant through virtuosic cinematic treatment and painstaking attention to detail in Hu Bo's singular swan song.
