Ash Is Purest White

Ash Is Purest White Release Date: March 15, 2019

A tragicomedy initially set in the jianghu-criminal underworld-setting, Ash Is Purest White is less a gangster movie than a melodrama. With a three-part structure, it begins by following the quick-witted Qiao (Tao Zhao) and her mobster boyfriend Bin (Fan Liao) as they stake out their turf against rivals and upstarts in 2001 postindustrial Datong before expanding out into an epic narrative of how abstract forces shape individual lives, and continues Jia Zhangke‘s body of work as a record of 21st-century China and its warp-speed transformations.
