Admission: $10 General/$6 Cinematheque Members

curated and presented by EMILY CHAO
live performance by AMMA ATERIA

Tonight’s program derives from a five-part series curated by Taiwan International Documentary Festival (TIDF), with support from the Taiwan Film Institute. In 2016, curators at TIDF conducted an exhaustive search for Taiwan’s experimental films of the 1960s, unearthing a striking body of largely forgotten works. Highly innovative and reflective of contemporary Taiwanese politics and culture, the works themselves embody a formal diversity which not only expands canons and challenges the definition of cinema but also sketches the rough edges of a generation’s own sense of modern film. Tonight’s program—curated by Emily Chao as part of Taiwan International Documentary Festival 2019 on Tour—presents a selection of films from TIDF’s comprehensive series, accompanied by live musical performance by Amma Ateria.

SCREENING: RUN (1966) by Han Hsiang-ning; LIFE CONTINUED (1966) by Chuang Ling; GETTING READY FOR THE FESTIVAL (1967) by Long Sih-liang; A MORNING IN TAIPEI (1964) by Pai Ching-jui; THE MOUNTAIN (1966) by Richard Yao-chi Chen.
