Taiwan Academy Film Festival, Scotland
October 9, 2020-October 12, 2020
The 5-day Taiwan Academy Film Festival is hosted by the University of Edinburgh in collaboration with the Cineworld in Edinburgh, celebrating world cinema in all its brilliance and diversity. This year, we are proudly presenting the works, Days (Rizi, 2020), by the acclaimed film director Tsai Ming-Liang, along with a series of award-winning Taiwanese feature films and one documentary.
In conjunction of Taiwan Academy Film Festival, Tsai Ming-Liang and Lee Kang-Sheng deliver a joint lecture “Hand-crafted Films: In the Age of Film Industrialization”. Tsai’s new project aims to transform the cinema into an art gallery where each screening could be an exhibition. He emphases the beauty and imperfections of each subject in his recent films who variously speak, stare, and, at one point, sleep as the camera quietly registers the weight of personal history and accumulated experience writ beautifully across every last pore and crevasse. The lecture will focus on his thoughts between art and film, cinema and museum and the challenges for the makers of ‘artisanal film”. The lecture will be followed by a conversation between the two film workers and a series of screening of episodes in Tsai and Lee’s recent films.
