East Palace / West Palace


China 1996, 94 minutes
Dir. Zhang Yuan
In Mandarin with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama / LGBT


Aroview: This rare independent mainland Chinese film is a difficult, often devastating two-hander between a gay man and the policeman sent to arrest him in a public toilet. An angry government responded to it by making independent production illegal and confiscating the director's passport.
