KFS presents Wong Kar-Wai's "2046"

Nov. 25, 2005

KALAMAZOO--Kalamazoo Film Society presents Director Wong Kar-Wai's latest film, "2046," Friday through Sunday, Dec. 2-4, in the Little Theatre at Western Michigan University.

Rated R, "2046" is presented in Cantonese, Japanese and Mandarin with English subtitles. Little Theatre showtimes for "2046" are 7 and 9:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2; 4:30, 7:00 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3; and 2:30 and 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4. Admission is $5 and $3 for students.

The film deals with familiar themes of unrequited and unfulfilled love. Set in the late 1960s, it is the story of Chow, played by Tony Leung, a pulp fiction writer living in a seedy Hong Kong apartment, and the series of women who move in and out of his life. Although he moves from woman to woman, place to place and even, perhaps, through time, he never escapes the essential loneliness of his life. Also starring in "2046" are Maggie Cheung, Gong Li and Ziyi Zhang.

The Little Theatre is located at the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver Street on Western Michigan University's East Campus. There is free off-street parking behind the theatre. For more information, call the movie line at (269) 387-8221, visit KFS at www.kalfilmsociety.net,
