SHUN LI & The Poet, which won Best First Feature at the 2012 BFI London Film Festival and the LUX Prize 2012, will be screened in Galway.
The Galway Film Society will show this acclaimed Italian film in the Town Hall Theatre this Sunday at 8.15pm.
Shun Li, a reserved, unhappy young woman, who has been transported to Italy by her gangmasters, must work in a bar to pay off a loanshark debt. Then she comes into contact with Bepi, an old fisherman who comes into the bar most days. They find comfort in each other, but their burgeoning relationship triggers tribal suspicion among the Chinese and Italians.
Tickets are available from the Town Hall on 091 - 569777 or www.tht.ie
