UIP to screen six China Film productions

United International Pictures, in association with the China Film Group, is to host a series of free screenings of six recent Chinese films on April 6 and 7 at the Odeon Covent Garden.
The two-day event, including screenings and an opportunity to meet the filmmakers at Q&A sessions following the screenings, will be free to the public.
"UIP has a longstanding partnership with the China Film Group for the distribution of its titles in mainland China," said UIP's Chairman and CEO, Stewart Till. "For example, we recently brought 'Johnny English' and 'The Italian Job' to audiences in Beijing. The ScreenChina initiative seemed like an ideal way to introduce London moviegoers to a sampling of China Film's productions."
Films to be screened during the UIP ScreenChina festival range from a contemplative father-and-son journey in 'Postman in the Mountains' featuring Teng Lujun ('Red Sorghum') and Liu Ye ('Floating Landscape') to a hard-hitting police drama, 'Jade Goddess of Mercy', starring Zhao Wei ('Shaolin Soccer') from director Ann Hui, a former student of the London Film School.
Also showing will be 'Heavenly Grassland' featuring a cast of Mongolian actors and 'A High Sky Summer', in which a film crew arrives in the village of a star-struck 12 year-old boy.
Tickets for UIP ScreenChina screenings will be given away free of charge at the Odeon Covent Garden box office from March 23, and through film schools and Oriental Studies programmes at local universities.
Films will be shown in their original versions with English subtitles.
