White Wall Cinema's Socially Distanced Summer Screen presents
WEDNESDAY JULY 22ND
DIRECTOR: Lulu Wang
STARRING: Awkwafina, Tzi Ma, Diana Lin, Zhao Shuzhen, Lu Hong, and Jiang Yongbo.
Rapper turned actress Awkwafina stars as Billi in Lulu Wang's thoughtfully rendered second feature film. A bittersweet comedy based on the director's own life experience of travelling home to China to visit her terminally ill grandmother. The family, as per Chinese tradition, take the decision to leave Billi's grandmother in the dark about her illness. At turns heartbreaking and funny The Farewell is triumph of poignant familial film making.
