THE PARKWAY THEATER - BETWEEN SHADOW AND SOUL

THE PARKWAY THEATER - BETWEEN SHADOW AND SOUL

Ash Mayfair's reworking of her acclaimed film THE THIRD WIFE into a silent, black and white film, creating a completely different cinematic experience. In late 19th century Vietnam, fourteen-year-old May becomes the third wife to a wealthy landowner. She quickly learns that she can gain status and security if she gives birth to a male child, but her burgeoning attraction to Xuan, the second wife, puts her fragile standing in jeopardy. As May observes the unfolding tragedy of forbidden love and its devastating consequences, she must make a choice, to either carry on in silence, or forge a path towards personal freedom.

"A truly gorgeous, detailed picture book of intimacy and erotic unease."
- Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
