Notably one of Taiwan’s greatest proponents of filmmaking, Edward Yang’s films have left an indelible mark on Asian cinema. After his passing in 2007, he left behind eight masterpieces; from his contribution to the omnibus film, In Our Time, often noted as the origin of the Taiwanese New Wave, to his final feature Yi Yi, a poignant film of intertwining lives in the urban contemporary landscape, Edward Yang has manifested the complexities of human existence through his interpretation of cinema and award-winning films. This complete retrospective will also offer an insight into his life through roundtable sessions with his former collaborators, friends and academics.
