A Time to Live and a Time to Die
Also Like Life: The Films of Hou Hsiao-hsien

Mar 23

(1985, 136 min, 35mm)

Monday, March 23 at Northwest Film Forum

Monday, Mar 23 at 07:00PM

Hou turned to his own coming-of-age story for one of his most acclaimed films, a tale that begins in 1947 and stretches over nearly twenty years. After the war, young Ah-hsiao (a fictionalized version of Hou) and his family move from China to rural Taiwan when his father secures a government job there. Ah-hsaio gets tangled up in street gangs, experiences his family's evolutions and struggles, and eventually takes up a central role in keeping them together. Jonathan Rosenbaum called it "an excellent introduction to [Hou's] work as a whole."
