About this item
Winner of the Best Cinematography Award at the Sundance Film Festival, the eloquent historical drama "Color of a Brisk and Leaping Day" has been acclaimed as "a film touched with greatness" (Village Voice) whose "very existence vindicates the dream of an art house independent cinema" (Film Comment). For train aficionado and hopeless romantic John Lee (Peter Alexander), life at the end of World War II is difficult enough as a man of Asian-mixed descent. the grandson to one of the many Chinese railroad laborer who helped forge a new America, John holds idealistic visions of saving a short-line train that runs through the gorgeous vistas of Yosemite Valley. With the help of the railroad's long-time employees (Michael Stipe of R.E.M. and Henry Gibson of Nashville and Magnolia), John makes it his year-long mission to turn the railroad around, while simultaneously courting a beautiful Native American park guide (Jeri Arredondo). Written and directed with complex subtlety by indie darling Christopher Munch ("Harry and Max", "The Sleepy Time Gal"), "Color of a Brisk and Leaping Day" is a boldly atmospheric ode to passion and preservation.
