UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Taiwan Academy in Los Angeles present What Time Is It There? Taiwanese Film Biennial

FACE TAIWAN: POWER OF TAIWAN CINEMA (Taiwan, 2016)
Directed by Hsiao Chu-Chen

North American premiere!

More than 30 years after Hou Hsiao-hsien and Edward Yang broke into the international film festival scene, what is the legacy of the Taiwan New Cinema? How have younger filmmakers since then responded to the inspirations and the burdens of those earlier auteurs? Interspersed with excerpts highlighting the dynamism and diversity of contemporary Taiwanese cinema, veteran documentarian Hsiao Chu-Chen interviews dozens of filmmakers, including many featured in this Archive series. Face Taiwan: Power of Taiwan Cinema gives not only a generational portrait of current styles and genres, it also raises crucial questions about tradition, innovation, local culture and long-term sustainability.

Director: Hsiao Chu-Chen. Producer: Jane H. C. Yu. Cinematographer: Shen Jui-Yuan, Hsiao Chu-Chen. Editor: Chen Po-Wen.

DCP, color, in Mandarin with English subtitles, 81 min.
