As proven by his knockout debut, KAILI BLUES, Bi Gan is preoccupied with filmas potential to both materialize mental space and convey physical sensation. His cinematic ambitions are further crystallized, to say the least, in LONG DAYaS JOURNEY INTO NIGHT, a noir-tinged film about a solitary man (Jue Huang) haunted by loss and regret, told in two parts: the first an achronological mosaic, the second a nocturnal dream.
