Bernardo Bertolucci's epic about the tumultuous life and times of Pu-Yi, born into royal opulence as the heir to China's Empire, he is displaced by the Revolution and, against a backdrop of war, intrigue and political maneuvering, is reduced to becoming a simple citizen of the Republic. Winner of nine Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director, this is a masterpiece that deserves to be seen on the big screen. Introduced by AFS Artistic Director Richard Linklater.
