HONESDALE, PA — The Wayne County Arts Alliance will present “The Road Home” as the second offering in its winter Sunday Night Cinema film series on Sunday, January 22 at 8:15 p.m. at Cinema 6 Theater in the Route 6 Mall.
Directed by the multiple-award-winning Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou, the film is based on a country girl’s reminiscence of her romance with her schoolteacher husband during the Cultural Revolution. “The Road Home” won the Silver Lion prize at the Venice Film Festival and the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival.
The Sunday Night cinema’s winter film series, “Reel Films: Films of History and Imagination,” runs through March 4 and features movies that reflect the vagaries of history and the individual’s attempt to cope with the unexpected. A donation of $5 per person is suggested, to help support the activities of the arts alliance. Films will be presented with a short introduction and followed by a discussion. Visit or call 570/390-4420.
