Los Angeles premiere, with director-screenwriter Huang Xi and producer Chuti Chang in person

A handyman’s car suddenly stalls, a young woman receives mysterious wrong number calls, an autistic boy rebels against his mother’s control. Working in the resonant style of executive producer Hou Hsiao-hsien, writer-director Huang Xi weaves this trio of lives together, drawing us into the work of living and making meaningful connections, as the skyline of a teeming, indifferent Taipei looms ever-present in the background. (2017, dir. Huang Xi, DCP. color, Mandarin and English with English subtitles, 106 min.)
