Ash Is Purest White, the acclaimed romantic crime drama from Jia Zhangke (Mountains May Depart), hits Blu-ray, DVD, and digital July 16 via Cohen Film Collection.

The tale centers on Qiao (Zhao Tao) who is in love with a local mobster named Bin (Liao Fan). During a fight, Qiao fires a gun to protect Bin and ends up in prison for five years. Upon her release, she attempts to find Bin and resume their relationship. The feature, set in the city of Datong and spanning over 17 years, receive critical acclaim during its 2018 premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
