Mountain 大山

20m Drama 2021

Language:Mandarin with English Subtitles

UK Premiere

Synopsis When a young girl moves to a mysterious village, she lives a quiet life as a priestess. But a special ceremony there gradually pushes her into the abyss.

Curator’s NoteDirector Du has a distinctive approach to representing women in film, here incorporating religious themes into her feminist narrative. Combining scenes of religious oracles with matters of female fertility, Mountain offers a keen insight into the female experience - one that is sharpened through powerful, unforgettable symbolism. But it is the film’s ending which reverberates most deeply, leaving ample room for audience interpretation.
