Ballarat Film Society – Wild Googe Lake

Access info

When small-time mob leader Zhou Zenong (Hu Ge) accidentally kills a cop, a bounty is placed on his head, forcing him on the run from both the police as well as dangerous gangsters out for the reward.

Hiding out in China’s densely populated (and deeply divided) Wuhan province, Zhou becomes entangled with an enigmatic woman, who has mysterious intentions of her own.

Wild Goose Lake is a lawless area of Wuhan: a perfect place to situate a high-paced crime thriller. Featuring gorgeous, neon-drenched cinematography and bursts of shocking, expertly choreographed action, The Wild Goose Lake is ‘spellbinding’ (Rolling Stone), ‘brilliant’ (Indiewire) and ‘downright Hitchcockian’ (AV Club). Umbrella.

China/France, 2019, 113 min.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
