YesAsia Editorial Description

From visionary Taiwanese director Edward Yang comes A Brighter Summer Day, an epic four-hour film set in 1960s Taiwan. Using a cast of teenage actors, including Chang Chen, Chang Han and Lawrence Ko, and natural locations, Yang brings what looks like a tale of rival street gangs to the screen. But his focus is really one young man, who faces his own individual struggles as the people of Taiwan come to grips with their personal identity. The boy's generation is the first born in Taiwan after the massive immigration of Nationalist Chinese from mainland China following the civil war. These new Taiwanese struggle to define their own identity, and find inspiration in sources from Chinese swordplay novels, to Russian literature, to Japanese weaponry, to American pop culture and music.

The world of A Brighter Summer Day is opposed to its hopeful title, and reflects one of uncertainty, where the future has never seemed quite so cloudy or unpredictable. Yang draws upon the trials of his own childhood – the daily dangers of gang violence, his own rural background, and the true-life murder of a 13-year-old girl by a 14-year-old boy – to weave a complex tapestry of the anxieties and fears facing a people uprooted by change and exile. A stunning, mesmerizing film which exemplifies the notion of film as art, A Brighter Summer Day is one of the definitive films of modern Taiwanese cinema.
