Hou Hsiao-hsien: DUST IN THE WIND on 35mm
Mar 24 at 7pm

1986, 110 min, 35mm

"Although the combination of lengthy shots and, in the early work, a relatively static camera has given Hou Hsiao-hsien an exaggerated reputation as a minimalist, his is above all a cinema of movement. The mobile train shot that begins Dust in the Wind, one of the key films of Taiwan's New Cinema, generates a visceral sensation of forward momentum while also looking back to the medium's nineteenth century origins. Hou vividly captures the confusion of young adulthood, but maintains a clear-eyed distance on the vicissitudes of ordinary lives by repeatedly returning to the landscape imagery of the opening shots. Based on the memories of screenwriter Wu Nien-jen, Dust in the Wind is both absorptive and reflective, encouraging viewers to continually refine their understanding of preceding scenes even when immersed in the unfolding present.  Richard I. Suchenski"


Part of Also Like Life: The Films of Hou Hsiao-hsien

Co-presented with the Northwest Film Forum!
35mm prints!

A striking, singular voice in world cinema, Hou Hsiao-hsien is a leading Taiwanese filmmaking auteur, whose invaluable contributions to the art of cinema range from intricately woven narratives to gracefully empathetic long takes (and achingly beautiful cinematography). This series samples Hou Hsiao-hsien's remarkable filmography, presenting five films that span fifteen years of his career.

An international retrospective organized by Richard I. Suchenski (Director, Center for Moving Image Arts at Bard College), in collaboration with the Taipei Cultural Center, the Taiwan Film Institute, 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) has been released in conjunction with this retrospective.
