Showcasing the films of Wong Kar-Wai as part of its Masters Series, join Calgary Cinematheque as it screens the mythic, melancholy, and mysterious, Ashes of Time Redux.

A prequel to the renowned novel The Legend of the Condor Heroes, the film imagines the older characters when they were younger. Although it received limited box office success, many critics cite it as one of the director’s most under-appreciated works and it has been called a philosopher’s movie.

Due to the original prints being lost, Wong Kar-Wai re-edited and re-scored the film in 2008 for future releases under the title Ashes of Time Redux.

Ashes of Time Redux screens at 7:00pm on December 7, 2017 at The Plaza Theatre (1133 Kensington Rd. NW). Presented in Mandarin and Cantonese with English subtitles, advance tickets and memberships can be found at
