YesAsia Editorial Description

Taiwan literature and film become one in The Inspired Island documentary series. A unique and meaningful project to document and preserve Taiwan's rich literary tradition, the series' six films by five up-and-coming directors offer tribute to the lives and achievements of six eminent writers.

From 1959 to 1980, Chou Meng Tieh ran a bookstall on Wuchang St. outside Cafe Astoria. His bookstall would become an iconic image of Taipei's 60s and 70s literary scene. In The Coming of Tulku, director Chen Chuan Xing attempts to reproduce the atmosphere of Wuchang St., and to recount the amazing pilgrimage of the 90-year-old poet. Chou sagely shares his memories and Buddhist-influenced writings, seeking meaning and inspiration from the pain of displacement and illness.

This edition comes with a book about the writer and 111 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage.
