  2. In celebration of the U-M Center for Chinese Studies’ 50th anniversary, we have reserved the historic Michigan Theater in downtown Ann Arbor for a one-time showing of A City of Sadness (悲情城市; bei qíng chéng shì, Taiwan, 157 minutes), the 1989 Taiwanese film by director Hou Hsiao Hsien.  The film was the first to deal openly with the KMT’s authoritarian misdeeds after its 1945 turnover of Taiwan from Japan, and the first to depict the “228 Incident” of 1947, in which thousands of people were massacred.  A City of Sadness has the added distinction of being the first Chinese-language film to win the Golden Lion award at the Venice Film Festival.
