We'll welcome in this year of the monkey by hosting the final official CADCAI Chinese New Year event THE ASSASSIN at 4:30 Sunday 21 Feb in the theatre at CoCA.
Hou Hsiao Hsien was awarded BEST DIRECTOR at Cannes in 2015 for The Assassin.
It's a ravishly beautiful period film with dashes of sword play and slow burning romance.
The Guardian has more....

The locally produced short film CHINAMAN’S CREEK ( 14min)  made in 2012 with the assistance of the local Chinese community will return to screen before THE ASSASSIN.

Cheers
