Chinese director Qiu Jiongjiong shows us 20th Century Chinese history in microcosm as he takes us through the memories of an elderly performer in a Sichuan theater who is dying and is about to be welcomed into the afterlife. Wars, cultural revolutions, and more are explored in a classically artificial manner using the tools and textures of Chinese opera.
