The Piano in a Factory (钢的琴)
January 13, 2016
Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre
7 p.m. | Free Admission

Facing a rough divorce after being betrayed by his wife, who left him for a wealthy businessman, Chen Guilin remains optimistic as he endures unexpected hardship. As part of the custody proceedings over his musician daughter, Chen must provide her a piano or risk having her taken from him as well. When his efforts to borrow money to buy a piano or even steal one outright fail will his optimism utterly shatter…or will a preposterous plan, loyal friends, and a derelict factory create something remarkable?

This 2011 film was directed by Zhang Meng.
