  1. 1 Jinpa (撞死了一隻羊)

    The movie starts off with Jinpa's vehicular manslaughter of a sheep. Jinpa then picks up a hitchhiker that (unbeknown to him) wants to murder his father. 

    The movie explores the similarities between the two men- both killers. It digs deep into the differences in their motives and actions. 

    The Hollywood Reporter defined Jinpa as “an intriguing if austere art house item” with “gorgeous” cinematography and “extremely precise and effective production values.” 

    The movie is nominated for: 

    • Best Film
    • Best Director
    • Best Cinematography
    • Best Original Music
