VMU Asian Week continues its Asian movie nights and invites you not to miss the evening of March 6th with the third highest grossing animated film in China – “Monkey King: Hero is Back” (西游记之大圣归来 – Xi you ji zhi da sheng gui lai).

The all-powerful Monkey King once roamed freely between Heaven and Earth, but after angering the Gods, he was imprisoned within an ice cage deep within the mountains. 500 years later, monsters attack a small village and a child flees to the mountains. Unknowingly, the child releases the Monkey King from his curse. With the help and encouragement from this special child, Monkey King saves the village from the evil monsters.


Movie screening will take place at the VMU Great Hall, S. Daukanto g. 28.
The movie will be shown with English subtitles.
