CCS Film Screenings: Taiwanese Cinema
This term’s screening series sets out to provide a taste of different styles of Taiwanese cinema and create an implicit dialogue between films, genres, media, periods, places, and ultimately, between filmmakers and the audience.
The screening of King Hu’s wuxia classic Dragon Inn (1967) anticipates Taiwan-based Malaysian director Tsai Ming-liang’s homage Goodbye, Dragon Inn (2003), which screens Dragon Inn in a soon-to-be demolished theater with the original cast Shih Chun and Miao Tien as audience members. The screening of Winds of September (2008), a cruel specimen of youth films (qingchun pian), should be compared with Hong Kong director Heiward Mak Hei-yan’s High Noon (2008). Both films as well as a mainland one are based on the same script and produced by Eric Tsang. A Rolling Stone (2012) represents Taiwanese documentary film at its most honest and realist. End of A Century: Miea’s Story is adapted from a short story “Fin-de-siècle Splendor” by Chu Tien-wen, a veteran collaborator of Hou Hsiao-hsien.
