Yukon Arts Centre

A chilling and gorgeous epic from a pre-eminent art-house film director working in China, A Touch of Sin illuminates the individual experiences of four people living in contemporary China: an economic giant slowly being eroded by violence. An angry miner revolts against the corruption of his village leaders, a migrant worker visiting home for the New Year discovers the infinite possibilities a firearm can offer. A young receptionist who dates a married man and works at a sauna is pushed to the limit when a rich client assaults her, and a young factory worker goes from one discouraging job to the next, only to face increasingly degrading circumstances. Winner of the Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Screenplay, 2013. In Mandarin with English subtitles.
