Synopsis

With Taiwan remaining in the grip of martial law in 1982, a group of filmmakers from that country set out to establish a cultural identity through cinema and to share it with the world. This engaging documentary looks at the movement’s legacy.

Our take

Featuring interviews with Hirokazu Kore-eda, Hou Hsiao-hsien, Wang Bing, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, and Jia Zhangke, this documentary portrait provides a thorough perspective on the landmark New Taiwanese Cinema. An essential document of one of 20th century cinema’s most significant chapters.
