Festival - ByDesign Festival 2023 [Hybrid]

(Sean Wang, Netherlands, Hong Kong, France & Greece, 2021, 99 min, in Greek, Chinese & French with English subtitles)

Blocks of white marble from a Greek quarry are shipped to China, where sculptors carve them into Hellenistic-style statues and columns. The leftover grit is made into fridge magnets and other souvenirs, which are sent back to Europe and then sold to Chinese tourists.

Along this cyclical production chain, we meet several key characters: the Chinese businessman who has taken over a Greek marble quarry, workers and their children in a souvenir factory in Quanzhou, and a French marble merchant in China. Chinese-speaking twin daughters of a Greek real estate giant accompany their father on business trips to China, acting as cultural ambassadors.

With wry humor, A Marble Travelogue captures the life cycle of a capitalist product: from raw material and capital to production, wholesale and retail. With a seductive visual style, the film explores the marble markets complex connections and connotations, from the perspective both of economics and class.

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject! If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Patron Services Manager at maria@nwfilmforum.org
