In the Mood for Maggie Cheung

When: Nov. 3-Dec. 16 2017

A film series showcasing some of Cheung’s most iconic performances. Whether as a silent film star in Stanley Kwan’s Center Stage, the struggling emigre in Peter Chan’s Comrades: Almost a Love Story, or the “character” of Maggie Cheung in Olivier Assayas’s Irma Vep, his cinematic ode to Louis Feuillade’s Les vampires; in her award-winning portrayal of a recovering addict in Assayas’s Clean, or her exuberant embodiment of a giant snake spirit longing to know human desire in Tsui Hark’s Green Snake, Cheung imbues each of her characters with uncommon wit, strength, and grace.

Price: free w/ museum admission
