YesAsia Editorial Description

Like 2016's Mountains May Depart, Jia Zhangke's 2018 arthouse saga Ash is Purest White is an intricate decades-spanning relationship drama told in three acts. Selected for competition at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, the gangster drama again stars the auteur's wife and muse, Zhao Tao, as a lionhearted woman involved with a mobster played by Liao Fan (Hidden Man). Nominated for Best Screenplay at the Asian Film Awards, Ash is Purest White reinterprets jianghu themes into the epic story of a woman's love and determination amid the rapid changes of modern China.

In 2001, Qiao (Zhao Tao) is the girlfriend of gang boss Bin (Liao Fan), who is a bigshot in their dying coal mining hometown. When Bin gets cornered and attacked by rivals one day, Qiao grabs a gun to save him and ends up in prison. In 2006, Qiao is released from prison, only to discover that Bin has left town and moved on without her. She goes to great lengths to find and confront him.

Product Information

In the spring of 1945, cherry blossoms flower in southern Sakhalin. For Tetsu Ezure and her sons, they symbolize hope. But the following August, the Soviet Union invades and they flee from Sakhalin. Barely managing to make it across the strait to Hokkaido, they make their way down the coast to Abashiri. Awaiting the battered family there is a life so harsh as to strain the imagination: cold and hunger through which they myst struggle to survive. They younger son, Shujiro, now grown, returns from America. He returns to Abashiri for the first time in 15 years to find his older brother gone and his elderly mother living alone in poverty still waiting for her husband to return. Shujiro decides to take her home and care for her. Tetsu, however, disappears, not wishing to cause problems for her successful son. Shujiro, in an effort to reach out, decides to accompany her, and the two set out around the vast plains of Hokkaido on a journey into the past. The Journey, however, opens the door to some long-buried memories.
