Film Screening: A Touch of Sin

An angry miner, enraged by widespread corruption in his village, decides to take justice into his own hands. A rootless migrant discovers the infinite possibilities of owning a firearm. A young receptionist, who dates a married man and works at a local sauna, is pushed beyond her limits by an abusive client. And a young factory worker goes from one discouraging job to the next, only to face increasingly degrading circumstances.

A Touch of Sin was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, with master filmmaker Jia Zhangke winning the award for Best Screenplay.
