Hal Holmes Community Center, Downtown Ellensburg

Join the CWU and Ellensburg communities for a special film screening of "To Live," a film adapted from Yu Hua's award-winning novel with the same name. 

The film follows the life of one family in China, from the heady days of gambling dens in the 1940s to the austere hardship of the Cultural Revolution in the 1960s. And through all of their fierce struggles with fate, all of the political twists and turns they endure, their hope is basically one summed up by the heroine, a wife who loses wealth and position and children, and who says, "All I ask is a quiet life together." Directed by Zhang Yimou, starring Gong Li.
