Comedy

A group of bright teenagers are recruited for a special college program for young geniuses only to find themselves socially awkward among their more normal peers. "The Ark of Mr. Chow" is a satirical take on the Chinese education system and how it emphasizes academic excellence over a student's overall personal development, especially outside of the academic curriculum. The director, Xiao Yang, was part of the class and draws on his personal experiences with the system to paint a lighthearted but accurate portrayal of what its like to grow up too intelligent for your own good.
