The Road to Mandalay

Friday, Mar 26 — Sunday, Apr 25, 2021

Dir. Midi Z. Taiwan, Myanmar, France, Germany. 2016, 108 mins. In Burmese with English subtitles. Described in Variety as “a low-key, high-impact love story about two illegal immigrants with very different ideas about making money and starting a new life in Bangkok,” The Road to Mandalay follows two strangers who are thrown together as they flee conflict and poverty and try to find work. With its assured visual style and compelling, eerie soundtrack, The Road to Mandalay marked a major step forward in Midi Z’s evolution as a filmmaker.
