YesAsia Editorial Description

In the 1980s, Taiwan cinema saw the emergence of a new wave of filmmakers, most notably Hou Hsiao Hsien and Edward Yang, who quietly revolutionized the film industry with their realistic depiction of Taiwan society and culture. Representative works of New Taiwan Cinema, like Hou's A City of Sadness and A Time to Live, A Time to Die and Yang's Taipei Story and A Brighter Summer Day, were acclaimed both at home and abroad, and greatly influenced the growth and development of later Taiwan films. Directed by Hsieh Chin Lin, the documentary Flowers of Taipei - New Taiwan Cinema explores the significance and impact of New Taiwan Cinema through interviews with Western cineastes like Marco Mueller and Tony Rayns, who brought Taiwan cinema to international festivals, and with Asian filmmakers and artists like Jia Zhangke, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Kurosawa Kiyoshi and Tian Zhuangzhuang who were influenced by the films.

In 1982, under severe martial law, amid the stormy climate of pre democratization, a small group of Taiwanese filmmakers set out on a daring journey to discover their own identity, and in the process to reinvent Asian cinema. Unintentionally, these gutsy youngsters managed to offset the cheap-labor image of ‘Made in Taiwan’ by bestowing a cultural identity on their beloved homeland. Taiwan New Cinema not only inaugurated modern cinema in the Chinese world, it also secured itself a firm place on the world map of contemporary filmmaking. Flowers of Taipei is about the harbingers of this miracle: Edward Yang, Hou Hsiao Hsien and their peers; it’s about their vision, talent and the impact they made on contemporary cinema……
