An ensemble drama as exquisitely crafted as a precious jewel, this debut feature from Chinese director Wang Feifei draws together several characters at a seaside resort, each of them searching for something yet struggling to connect.
Sanqing is in love with her tutor, Sun, and hopes their escape will fortify the relationship. Sun, meanwhile, drops hints that he wants to break it off but finds he can’t let go once Sanqing begins stoking his jealousy with the mysterious Wang, who seems haunted by the recent suicide of an acquaintance.
With its echoes an Antonioni, From Where We’ve Fallen moves between arresting images—a woman standing in a rising tide, a pair of crystal high heels, an lonely hotel hallway in the wee hours—to unravel a tantalizingly tangled narrative of dreams, desperation and desire.
This film is also featured in the 2018 Film Festival’s Cinema & China film category.
