Friday 4-20:

Film Screening: Hero (2002) 

Location: Peters Education Center (Student Recreation Center west of Save-Mart Center)

Time: 5:30 p.m.

Discussants: Ed EmanuEl

Hero stars Jet Li as the assassin known only as “Nameless.” The film tells the story of the attempted assassination of China’s first Emperor, but more importantly, Hero reveals an essential Chinese cultural tenet: no dishonor will go unavenged. Jet Li, who was raised with the story on which Hero is based, waited twenty years to play this role. The Chinese government would not approve a film version of this historical event for both political and social reasons until massive re-writes were made. The result is a magnificent historical epic which delves into the shifting waves of power that characterized ancient China during its wars for unification.  Mandarin with English subtitles. Rated PG 13. 99 minutes.

Discussant: Doug Rice

Guido is a film director, trying to relax after his last big hit. He can’t get a moment;s peace, however, with the people who have worked with him in the past constantly looking for more work. He wrestles with his conscience, but is unable to come up with a new idea. While thinking, he starts to recall major happenings in his life, and all the women he has loved and left. Director Federico Fellini’s semiautobiographical rumination on the joys and rigors of filmmaking — as well as lovers past and present — won two Oscars: Best Foreign Language Film and Best Costume Design, Black-and-White. Italian, French, German & English with English subtitles. 138 minutes.
