The Breaking Ice

Anthony Chen, China, Singapore

燃冬, 2023, 97 min, K12

Three young adults cross paths in Yanji, Northern China’s wintery Korean area, and end up passing their days and nights together. Each has their own questions about the future for differing reasons. An atmosphere of melancholy surrounds them in the beautiful scenery, and the uncertainty facing many Chinese youth today can be felt. The film competed in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes.
