Hero (2002)

Happy Spring Semester Everyone! We all hope you had a safe and enjoyable holiday and we are very excited to begin our film screenings for the semester. We will be sponsoring various films this semester as well as continuing our International Film Series and Cult Film Series and will be posting the dates for all the film screenings soon. Stay Tuned for that!

Coming up next week we are kicking off our International Film Series with the Academy Award Nominated film Hero (China 2002 Rated PG-13)
This screening will be held on Thursday January 14th and 7:00 pm in the UVU Library Auditorium.

At the height of China's Warring States period, the country was divided into seven kingdoms: Qin, Zhao, Han Wei, Yan, Chu and Qi. For years, the separate kingdoms fought ruthlessly for supremacy. The Qin King was obsessed with conquering all of China and becoming her first Emperor. He had long been the target of three legendary assassins.To anyone who defeated the assassins, the King promised great power, gold and a private audience with the King himself. For ten years no one came to claim the prize. So when the enigmatic county sheriff, Nameless (Jet Li), came to the palace bearing the legendary weapons of the slain assassins, the King was impatient to hear his story. Sitting in the palace, only ten paces from the King, Nameless told his extraordinary tale. But then something unexpected happened - the King had a different story to tell of how Nameless really came to sit there. In the center of the intrigue sits Nameless and the ruler of the Kingdom, with only ten steps between them. Within those ten steps holds an earth-shattering tale of love, honor and duty, a story that moves beyond the reaches of history.

Hope to see you all there!
