The UCLA Film & Television Archive presents classic film and contemporary cinema in the Hammer's Billy Wilder Theater. Archive tickets are $9 general admission and free for UCLA students.
Part of the Taiwan Biennial Film Festival 2019
Los Angeles premiere
Inspired by Ten Years (2015), the omnibus film that envisioned different futures for Hong Kong 10 years hence, this kaleidoscopic collection of shorts brings the concept to Taiwan. And for the five participating filmmakers, the future looks a lot like the present. Dystopia reigns throughout, but each story feels rooted in the political, economic, cultural, ecological, and demographic anxieties of the current moment. It’s what makes the project so captivating and unnerving: these futures are happening now. (2018, dir. Hsieh Pei-Ju, Kek Huat Lau, Lekal Sumi Cilangasan, Lu Po-Shun, Rina B. Tsou, DCP, color, Taiwanese, Mandarin, Yami, and English with English subtitles, 108 min.)
