Chinese director Yi'nan Diao goes the opposite way in his chilly whodunit, Black Coal, Thin Ice, the story of a disgraced small town detective who reunites with a former partner, when a new murder case appears oddly similar to the one that caused their downfall. The film won the Golden Bear award at the 2014 Berlin International Film Festival.

There will be a post screening discussion with Professors Mayfair Yang, Michael Berry, Bhaskar Sarkar, and UCLA Chinese Film Fest Curator Cheng-sim Lim.
