Don Quijote de Cine: Tang Ji Ke De
Join us for the screening of Tang Ji Ke De on October 25. This screening is part of Don Quijote de Cine, a film series that compiles five film adaptations of the classic Miguel de Cervantes novel commemorating the 400th anniversary of Cervantes' death.
Tang Ji Ke De
Directed by A Gan, China, 2010, 110 minutes. In Chinese with English subtitles.
The story of Don Quijote was introduced to China at the beginning of the 20th century by two Chinese litterateurs Lin Shu and Chen Jialin. Based on the classic novel by Cervantes, director A Gan's "Don Quixote" adds elements of China to this famous story. Tang Ji Ke De brings us the absolutely delusional but extremely sweet character of Don Quixote and his faithful squire in a story of honour, adventure and love set in ancient China. Tang Ji Ke De was the first 3D movie filmed in Asia.
