Cinema Release "An Elephant Sitting Still"

arsenal distribution is releasing AN ELEPHANT SITTING STILL by Hu Bo as of November 15. The film, which received its world premiere as part of this year's Forum programme where it won the FIPRESCI award, was praised by audiences and critics alike and has been shown and awarded at numerous international film festivals since. Tragically, Hu Bo does not live to see the success of his directorial debut, as he took his own life at the age of 29 after completing the film.
