Directed by Yukun Xin • Drama • With Wu Jiang, Yang Song • 2017 • 119 minutes
Searching for his missing son in the rough mountains of Northern China, Zhang Baomin (Yang Song), a mute miner with a brutal past, confronts a world of corruption led by the villainous Chang Wannian (Wu Jiang), a crossbow-wielding kingpin with an obsession for meat.
An official selection of the BFI London Film Festival, where it made its international premiere, WRATH OF SILENCE is a gripping thriller from rising Chinese filmmaker Yukun Xin that is part spaghetti western, part film noir, and which presents a “damning condemnation against the dictatorial elite and their tyrannical control on working class citizens” (Film Inquiry).
