Beauty Remains

--Meeting the Director

On the U.S. premiere of Beauty Remains directed by Ann Hu, the Learned (Renwen) Society at China Institute invites the director to meet with the audience in a  reception to talk about the making of the movie and conduct a Q & A session at 1:30 pm on Saturday, September 22 in the ImaginAsia Theater, located at 239 East 59th Street and Second Avenue) in Manhattan. In order to provide a basis for discussion, those who attend the reception are encouraged to see the 12 pm showing of the movie at the theater. As the event is close to the Moon Festival, moon cakes and drinks will be served at the reception. There is no charge for attending the reception, but the audience need to purchase the tickets from the theater to see the movie. Please visit for information about ticket purchase.

"Beauty Remains" is the story of two sisters--Fei and Ying--bound together by the will of their late father, and their shared love for a charismatic ex-boxer, Huang. They are two women whose paths have been dictated by the often cruel decrees of the men in their lives--two women who must somehow transcend that influence...or lose everything.
