The Trak CineCentre is honoured to present a strictly limited engagement of the first and last film of Chinese novelist-turned-director, Hu Bo, who committed suicide shortly after the film's completion at age 29. Making its world premiere at the 68th Berlin International Film Festival in 2018, the film has since received critical acclaim around the world.

In the northern Chinese city of Manzhouli, they say there is an elephant that simply sits and ignores the world.

Manzhouli becomes an obsession for the protagonists of this film, a longed-for escape from the downward spiral in which they find themselves.

Among them is schoolboy Bu, on the run after pushing Shuai down the stairs, who was bullying him. Bu's classmate, Ling, has run away from her mother and fallen for the charms of her teacher. Shuai's older brother, Cheng, feels responsible for the suicide of a friend. And finally, along with many other characters whose fates are inextricably bound together, there's Mr Wang, a sprightly pensioner whose son wants to offload him onto a home.

In virtuoso visual compositions, the film tells the story of one single, suspenseful day from dawn to dusk, when the train to Manzhouli is set to depart.

In 1972, following a string of hits and Grammy awards, Aretha Franklin booked a Baptist church in Los Angeles for a two night recording session. The result was Amazing Grace, her most successful album, and the top selling gospel recording of all time.

Warner Brothers Records hired Sydney Pollack to shoot the process, seeking a combination of a concert film and a making-of. At the time, the resultant footage was unusable, with crew neglecting to slate the shots, necessary for synchronisation.

Following Pollack's death in 2008, Alan Elliot used modern editing tools to synchronise the footage, and the film was set to screen at the Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals. A last minute injunction by Franklin prevented this from happening, with her reasons remaining a mystery.

In 2018, the film was released for a one-week run to qualify for the Academy Awards. And now, in August 2019, it receives it's Australian release. Critics are calling it one of the finest music documentaries ever made.
