From one of the greatest living filmmakers of our time comes MOUNTAINS MAY DEPART, Jia Zhang-ke's generation-spanning family drama, opening March 4th at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto.

"Few filmmakers working today look as deeply at the changing world as Mr. Jia does, or make the human stakes as vivid." ~ New York Times

"[Highlighted] by Jia's rapturous image-making and a luminous central performance by the director's regular muse (and wife), Zhao Tao." ~ A.V. Club

"Jia Zhang-ke's... exploration of change, loss and regret has never felt more personal than in Mountains May Depart." ~ Hollywood Reporter

China, 1999. In Fenyang, childhood friends Liangzi, a coal miner, and Zhang, the owner of a gas station, are both in love with Tao, the town beauty. Tao eventually marries the wealthier Zhang and they have a son he names Dollar.

2014. Tao is divorced and her son emigrates to Australia with his business magnate father.

Australia, 2025. 19-year-old Dollar no longer speaks Chinese and can barely communicate with his now bankrupt father. All that he remembers of his mother is her name.
