Playing in competition for the Palme d'Or this week at Cannes, "A Touch of Sin," the latest from Chinese director Jia Zhangke, has released a trailer, exclusive to Indiewire.

From the Gold Lion-winning director of "Still Life," "A Touch of Sin" follows four separate people navigating their lives across four Chinese provinces. In one province an angry minor revolts against corruption, in another a migrant worker discovers the possibilities a gun can offer, in a third area a factory worker jumps from job to job, all while a pretty receptionist is assaulted in another. Described as a reflection on modern-day China, "A Touch of Sin" looks to be Palme d'Or-winning material as a heavy film commenting on the violence, economic struggles and dissatisfaction with everyday life through the eyes of common people.
