Jia Zhangke has become widely regarded as one of world cinema’s most accomplished filmmakers, and a leading figure of the Sixth Generation movement of Chinese cinema. This collection presents three of Jia’s most compelling works together on Blu-ray™.

In 24 City (2008), Jia skilfully combines documentary and fiction film as he records the social impact of transforming a military hardware factory into a complex of luxury flats. 

The Cannes prize-winner A Touch of Sin (2013) focuses on four people living across China who are driven to acts of violence. An angry miner, enraged by corruption in his village; a migrant who discovers the infinite possibilities of owning a firearm; a receptionist at a sauna who is pushed to the limit by a client; and a young worker drifting through the foreign-owned factories and nightclubs of the south. 

Jia’s eighth feature film, Mountains May Depart (2015), is an intimate and moving drama spanning several decades which charts the impact of China’s capitalist experiment on the lives of one family.
