18th Annual Made in Hong Kong Film Festival


The Smithsonian Freer|Sackler Galleries present the 18th Annual Made in Hong Kong Film Festival!

Tonight's film is The Bullet Vanishes at 7pm in the Freer Gallery of Art Meyer Auditorium.

Cost: Free

In this moody mystery, set in the 1920s, a munitions factory worker accused of stealing a box of bullets dies in a game of Russian roulette that was rigged by her corrupt boss. Soon afterward, a murder occurs at the factory and the bullet mysteriously disappears from the scene. The workers believe their dead colleague’s ghost is seeking revenge, and the police hire obsessive investigator Donglu (Lau Ching-wan) and his sharpshooting partner Guo Zhi (Nicholas Tse) to solve the case.


Cosponsored by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, all films are in Cantonese with Chinese and English subtitles unless otherwise indicated.

The festival continues in July with three classic films starring Leslie Cheung, in commemoration of the tenth anniversary of his tragic death. In August, we present a special screening of another Cheung film selected by the public in a Facebook poll. Vote by visiting www.facebook.com….
