Overview

Join us in the MMoCA Lecture Hall for Mountain Patrol: Kekexili (2004, Lu Chuan). Inspired by true events, the film follows a volunteer posse that patrols the remote Tibetan region of Kekexili to protect endangered antelope from poachers. The film explores the vulnerability in these men as they seek to protect this revered antelope. An embedded journalist investigates the conflict between the patrol and the poachers, despite the dangerous terrain and threat of violence.

The screening begins at 7 PM in the Lecture Hall. MMoCA Cinema tickets are $7 or free for members or those under 18. Tickets go on sale in the Lobby at 6:30 PM.
