Ely Film Society - celebrating and sharing film in all its forms
Our next film, on MONDAY 15th May, is EXIT, a drama from Taiwan.
Flashed with moments of black humour, EXIT is a portrait of Ling, a Taiwanese woman trapped between two generations, struggling between tradition and modern society.
A lovely study of longing and abandonment, frayed connections and emancipatory possibilities, EXIT manages to relay events from Ling's perspective while seldom relying on point-of-view shots. Instead the film maintains its distance, keeping a watchful eye over a lonely soul.
By the end it not only carefully avoids sentimentality, it manages to channel some very understandable anger into a powerful conclusion, as we start to see someone with resources that have thus far barely been tapped.
Please don't forget that members can invite their guests along to the film for one-off ticket fees if they wish.
The screening will commence at 7.30pm.
