The Goddess. Tuesday Oct 14 2014, 7:30 PM, Queen Elizabeth Hall

This newly restored, iconic silent film is presented as part of the BFI’s year-long Electric Shadows project celebrating artistic and cultural collaborations between China and Britain, and is screened here with the Ukraine premiere of renowned composer Zou Ye’s score. Ruan Lingyu’s devastating performance as an unnamed ‘goddess’– an ironic euphemism for her profession as a prostitute – is a classic of world cinema. As a mother desperate to provide for her young son and forced to take brutal vengeance on her pimp, Ruan scorches the screen with brilliantly understated naturalism. Director Wu Yonggang’s stance is deeply humanistic – he never passes judgment on his heroine’s work or actions. It is a profoundly moving drama, all the more poignant by the fact that its star committed suicide at the age of 24, a year after the film’s release.

Zou Ye’s new score, commissioned by the K T Wong Foundation, will be performed live by the English Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Nicholas Chalmers. Restoration by the China Film Archive, supported by SAPPRFT, in association with the K T Wong Foundation and the BFI.

Text GDS to 5555 now for the chance to be the lucky winner of 2 FREE screening tickets!
