The love for Wang Kar Wai’s filmography continues, as the winner of January’s Choose-your-own Screening poll is Fallen Angels (1995)! Often hailed as a darker, moody counterpart to his seminal Chungking Express, this neo-noir swings between drama and levity in its exploration of love and longing.
Beginning from this screening, we will be resuming our former starting time of 6 PM! As usual, we’ll be heading to Phineas afterwards to discuss the film and chat.
Location: Harrie Massey LT
Time: 6- 8:00 PM, Tuesday, January 31st
