Acropolis Cinema presents: Suburban Birds
Suburban Birds (Dir. Qiu Sheng, 2018)

Date: April 19, 2019
Time: 8:00pm
Location: Echo Park Film Center
Address: 1200 N. Alvarado St., Los Angeles, 90026

Los Angeles premiere!
Introduction by critic and programmer Mark Peranson.

A striking debut from Chinas Qiu Sheng, Suburban Birds is a tantalizing mystery and a bittersweet coming-of-age comedy rolled into one. Hao (Mason Lee) is part of a team of young engineers called in to investigate a series of craters that have opened up on the edge of the city. As he and his team survey the subsiding area, another story is taking place in the same suburban landscape. A younger boy, also named Hao, spends long afternoons playing with friends and making mischief until one-by-one, his playmates start to disappear. As these parallel stories unfold, the connections between them proliferate and grow stranger.

With virtuosic assurance, Qiu employs distinct styles for each of the two narrative strands and unites them with a wry and wistful sense of humor. Suburban Birds is both a reflection on the slippery nature of memory as well as a comment on Chinas rapid urbanization that heralds the arrival of an exciting new voice. (Cinema Guild)
