Hou Hsiao-hsien: FLOWERS OF SHANGHAI on 35mm
Mar 26 at 7pm

FLOWERS OF SHANGHAI
1998, 113 min, 35mm

1884: In a brothel in Shanghai's British area, four women build their lives, shut off from the outside world and surrounded by opium smoke, money and men. Acclaimed for its stunning 7-minute opening shot, sensuous cinematography and sophisticated construction of a microcosmic world, Flowers of Shanghai is based on a well-known 19th century Chinese novel.

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.
