Adapting Liu Zhenying's 2012 novel, Xiaogang Feng's stylistically inventive comedy drama is a well-pitched satire of Chinese bureaucracy and gender politics, framed within a story of a woman who plans a fake divorce (in order to gain a second home), only to be deceived by her husband who immediately moves in with another woman.

Her determination to gain retribution (by marrying him again in order to divorce him properly) knows no boundaries. Strikingly composed in a circular frame — reminiscent of traditional Chinese paintings — for much of the film, I Am Not Madame Bovary makes for a truly unique cinema experience.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with author Liu Zhenyun, which will be introduced and chaired by Michael Kahn-Ackerman.
