Jia Zhangke has become widely regarded as one of world cinema s most accomplished filmmakers and a leading figure of the Sixth Generation movement of Chinese cinema. This collection presents three of Jia s most compelling works together on DVD and Blu-ray, along with a wealth of extras.

In 24 City (2008) Jia skilfully combines documentary and fiction film as he charts the transformation of a military hardware factory into a complex of luxury flats, and the social impact this has.

The Cannes prize-winner A Touch of Sin (2013) focuses on four people living across China who are driven to acts of violence. An angry miner, enraged by corruption in his village; a migrant who discovers the infinite possibilities of owning a firearm; a receptionist at a sauna who is pushed to the limit by a client, and a young factory worker drifting through the foreign-owned factories and nightclubs of the south.

Jia s eighth feature film, Mountains May Depart (2015) is an intimate and moving drama spanning several decades which charts the impact of China s capitalist experiment on the lives of one family.
