On its 30th anniversary, experience the influential Chinese film Farewell My Concubine, restored and uncut for the first time. Cheng Dieyi (Leslie Cheung) and Duan Xiaolou (Zhang Fengyi) are classmates at the Peking Opera Academy. The boys mature and their dramatic identities become real for Dieyi when he falls in love with Xiaolou, who fails to reciprocate his affections and marries a courtesan (Gong Li), creating a dangerous romantic triangle. Spanning 50 years from the early 20th century to the Cultural Revolution, this genre-bending love story captures the vast historical scope of a changing country and features performances showcasing the remarkable tradition of the Peking Opera.
