Part of the Taiwan Biennial Film Festival 2019
The Glamorous Boys of Tang
Los Angeles premiere
Visual artist Su Hui-Yu conjures scenes from a famously unproduced Taiwanese cult film from the 1980s, Tang Chao Cho Li, as a series of mesmerizing, erotic, and gory tableaux. (2018, dir. Su Hui-Yu, DCP, color, 15 min.)
Raining in the Mountain
Los Angeles restoration premiere
Two rival groups of thieves arrive at a remote Buddhist monastery to steal an ancient sutra manuscript. Meanwhile, the monastery itself is rife with intrigue as the monks vie to succeed their aging abbot. The second of two classic epics—the other being Legend of the Mountain—shot in Korea by legendary director King Hu, Raining in the Mountain is a late-career masterpiece presented here in a new restoration. (1979, dir. King Hu, DCP, color, 120 min.)
