你不能錯過的“滄海遺珠”——《大象席地而坐》。

滿州里動物園有一頭大象,每天坐在那裡。
為朋友出頭的少年、為弟報仇的惡霸哥哥、身陷囹圄的女生、有家不能歸的老人,四條看似毫不相關的生命線,被卡在世界灰暗的縫隙裡無法脫身,卻因要看大象的執著而走到一起。
蕭瑟寒冬的一天,絕望身影在不對稱不平衡的影像中碰撞, 爆裂了壓抑的沉鬱。
看不見大像是共同宿命,作者兼導演胡波驟然隕落,也成了這一代人的遺憾。

Over the course of a single, eventful day, a restless camera stalks lives scarred by indifference, violence, and despair amid the frozen post-industrial decay of an anonymous city somewhere in northern China. Teenage Weibu (Peng Yuchang) is bullied at home and in school, his old neighbour Wang Jin (Liu Congxi) has been evicted from his home by his estranged family, and his classmate Huang Ling (Wang Yuwen) is having an affair with a school official and fears the release of a revealing video. To escape from their families, authorities, gangsters, and the bleak nature of reality, they embark on a journey to Manzhouli, where a mythical elephant is said to be sitting still, indifferent to the brutality of the world — casting a legendary spell that seems to draw the protagonists away from their troubles. Achingly elegant and epic, Hu Bo’s magnificent debut film spins a wrenching tale of rage and beauty. It is destined to become a landmark of new Chinese cinema, albeit one tainted by tragedy, as the immense talent of the young director is now forever lost due to his death shortly after the completion of this film.
