Devils on the Doorstep at Santa Cruz GDI
Horrifying and yet full of life and often disturbingly funny, "Devils on the Doorstep" is a different drama of World War II ― as seen from occupied China.
Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In Presents:
Devils on the Doorstep (鬼 子来了)
Award-winning 2000 Chinese black comedy produced and directed by Jiang Wen, starring Jiang himself, set in the shadow of the Great Wall during the final months of the Japanese occupation. By turns incongruously hilarious and grotesquely shocking, it staggers the mind, a film of much complexity that will resonate with any thinking viewer. Shot in rich, shadowy black-and-white, Devils chronicles, with increasingly amused irony, the relationship between reluctant captors and befuddled captives. It concerns much more than the specific time and place it encompasses, acting as a powerful indictment of the burdens of war on a civilian population. While acknowledging that war is hell, it goes further to suggest it is ludicrous.
PLUS thrilling and funny short films, an intermission, and great company.
