Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.

Inspired by the bestselling novel 'Snow Flower and the Secret Fan' by Lisa See, the film is a timeless portrait of female friendship. In 19th-century China, seven year old girls Snow Flower and Lily are matched as laotong or 'old sames' bound together for eternity. Isolated by their families, they furtively communicate by taking turns writing in a secret language, nu shu, between the folds of a white silk fan.
