If you don't know this movie, you don't know Hong Kong cinema. A Better Tomorrow is a little gangster film that became nothing less than a phenomenon—a multiple award winning, box-office smashing tour-de-force from John Woo that single-handedly changed Hong Kong cinema forever. In other words, it's pretty damn good. -

Followed by Q&A with editor/director David Wu. Q&A conducted by Peter Kuplowsky (Senior Programmer, After Dark Film Festival; Assistant, TIFF Nexus).
