لائف کی طرح: Hou Hsiao-hsien کی فلمیں بھی
Friday, Sep 12 - Friday, Oct 17, 2014
Hou Hsiao-hsien, the leading figure of the Taiwanese New Wave, is one of the most important and influential filmmakers to emerge over the past three decades. His sensuous, richly textured work, marked by elegantly staged long takes, largely static camera positions, and a radically elliptical approach to storytelling, is instantly recognizable in such widely acclaimed movies as Flowers of Shanghai, The Puppetmaster, کیفے Lumière, اداسی کا شہر, ہوا میں دھول، اور Flight of the Red Balloon. The retrospective لائف کی طرح: Hou Hsiao-hsien کی فلمیں بھی includes all of Hou’s seventeen feature films as director, all shown on film (including new 35mm prints). The series will also include short films directed by Hou Hsiao-hsien, and a sidebar program of related films including Olivier Assayas’s intimate documentary HHH: Hou Hsiao-hsien کا ایک پورٹریٹ, Edward Yang’s seminal Taipei Story (starring, and co-written by, Hou), and more.
یہ internationally touring retrospective was organized by Richard I. Suchenski (Director, Center for Moving Image Arts at Bard College) in collaboration with Taipei Cutural Center, NY and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of China (Taiwan). The book Hou Hsiao-hsien (Vienna: Österreichisches Filmmuseum and New York: Columbia University Press, 2014) is released in conjunction with this retrospective.
