CALENDAR OF EVENTS FOR MARCH 3-9

THURSDAY, MARCH 3:

FILM: The Alan Lutkus International Film Series presents the film "Ying xiong (Hero)." In third century BC, a warrior called Nameless (Jet Li) arrives at the temple of Chin Shi Huang Di (the first emperor of China) to describe how he has killed three of the monarch’s greatest enemies. Each murder — and the emperor’s interpretation — constitutes a separate episode, drenched in a different color, combining visually stunning, highly awarded cinematography from Zhang Yimou, who led China’s Fifth Generation filmmaking movement, and superb performances from the cream of the Hong Kong cinema. In Mandarin, with English subtitles. Discussant: Tze-ki Hon of the history department. 7 p.m., Bailey Hall Auditorium (135). Free and open to the public.
