RIBA is partnering with Rooftop Film Club to host outdoor screenings and Q&As at the Bussey Building in Peckham throughout June.
In The Mood for Love presents a visually evocative tale of love and betrayal set in 1960s Hong Kong. The claustrophobic closeness of the city’s overcrowded apartment blocks frames the increasingly complex and intertwined lives of two Shanghai immigrants - Chow Mo-wan, played by Tony Leung, and Su Li-zhen, played by Maggie Cheung. Director Wong Kar-wai’s nuanced use of the domestic interior, intertwined with a lush colour palette, creates a rich cinematic experience that was the visual reference point for Barry Jenkin’s Oscar-winning Moonlight in 2016.
Before the screening there will be a short Q&A with RIBA Exhibitions Curator, Pete Collard.
