The Island

WMCI is proud to announce that on Thursday, January 31, we will be hosting a screening of the 2018 Chinese film The Island, as well as a reception and performances preceding the film, at the 2019 Global Film Festival.

The reception will begin at 3:00, with food served in the Kimball Theatre Lobby. Then, as you enjoy your food in the theatre, there will be performances starting from 3:30, including music, a Changquan demonstration, and a Taiji Fan performance.

The film screening will begin at 4:00 pm. The Island follows Ma Jin, a man who hears news that a meteor will soon strike the Earth; however, leading up to that event, it has no impact on his everyday life. When the cataclysmic event finally does occur during a team-building trip, Ma Jin finds himself shipwrecked on an island with an odd group of coworkers...and the winning lottery ticket in his pocket.

Tickets for this event cost $5 and can be ordered online via Eventbrite. W&M students may attend this and all other Global Film Festival Events for free. To receive a ticket, go to the Kimball Theatre Box Office and present your student ID.
