Fortune Teller

Xu Tong's Fortune Teller will be screened at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.

April 17, 2011 2:00pm to 12:00am

Official selection at the Rotterdam International Film Festival, Fortune Teller is about Li Baicheng, a charismatic fortune teller who services a clientele of prostitutes and marginalized figures whose jobs, like his, are commonplace but technically illegal in China. He practices his ancient craft in a village near Beijing while taking care of his wife Pearl, who is mentally and physically impaired, and who he rescued from her family’s mistreatment. Winter brings a police crackdown on both fortune tellers and prostitutes, forcing Li and Pearl into temporary exile in his hometown, where he revisits old family demons.
