Quest for a Long-Lost Husband (Haiwai xunfu) Screening

A fascinating glimpse of the Chinese diaspora across southeast Asia, this Hong Kong production follows a wayward husband through Southern China and Thailand, and the travails of the sorrowful wife he leaves behind. Economics force a just-married man to Thailand for work, but a chance meeting with a wealthy woman ensures that he quickly forgets all about his new wife. Soon he's living large in bow-ties and mansions, while she remains surrounded by poverty and sickness, caring for their rapidly ailing son. Never before shown in the US, this impressive melodrama captures the fears of a rapidly changing, rapidly dividing society.
