Stanley KWAN Hong Kong 155 Min NC16 (Some Nudity) Southeast Asian Premiere

Stanley KWAN’s stunning biopic of Chinese silent-film icon RUAN Lingyu is given a sumptuous restoration in celebration of its 30th anniversary.

Stanley KWAN reinvents the biopic, tackling the short-lived career and life of “Chinese Greta Garbo” RUAN Lingyu, who was known for her exceptionally realistic performances. Center Stage chronicles Ruan’s rise to stardom in 1930s Shanghai, her relationships with collaborators on set, and her tumultuous love life. The latter became intense fodder for the paparazzi, leading to her suicide at the young age of 24.
