Reality in Long Shots: A Hou Hsiao-hsien Retrospective
September 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm - $11.25
The Austin Asian American Film Festival and Austin Film Society present “Reality in Long Shots,” a retrospective of works by the pioneering Taiwanese writer-director Hou Hsiao-Hsien, at AFS Cinema from September 8-29, 2018. This retrospective is the largest of Director Hou’s works that Austin has seen since 2000, and is made possible by the Ministry of Culture – Taiwan’s Spotlight Taiwan grant, with assistance from the Taiwan Academy of Houston.
Film fans will be particularly excited to see two films that have never been released in the United States among the lineup: a new 4K digital restoration of THE BOYS FROM FENGKUEI opens the event on September 8th, and a 35mm print of A CITY OF SADNESS closes it on September 29th. Special guest Peggy Chiao, a producer, critic, and current professor of creative filmmaking at the Taipei National University of the Arts, will be in attendance on closing night to introduce A CITY OF SADNESS and participate in a moderated discussion after the film.
