Daily | Nyff 2015 | Jia Zhangke’s Mountains May Depart

Jia Zhangke returns to New York, where he'll be discussing his work during Tuesday's Directors Dialogue.

However, before Jcvd and Kylie Minogue tried their hand at computer game adaptation, there was a Japanese anime that was in many respects moderately successful.
