Taiwanese film to be screened at Heritage Space

The Saigon Times Daily

HCMC - Heritage Space on the first floor of Dolphin Plaza in Hanoi’s Nam Tu Liem District will screen “Dust in the Wind”, a 1986 film by Taiwanese filmmaker Hou Hsiao-hsien, for the 23rd FILM Storyteller program on Saturday, July 14, starting at 7 p.m.

Based on co-screenwriter Wu Nien-jen's own experiences, the film is the final part of Hou's coming-of-age trilogy, with the others being A Summer at Grandpa's (1984) and The Time to Live and the Time to Die (1985).

It tells a love story about a young couple from Jio-fen, a small mining town in the northern-east part of Taiwan. In the town, A-yuan is an apprentice by day and goes to night school, and A-yun works as a helper at a tailor’s shop. Everyone thinks they are meant for each other, so do they. However, they fail to see time and fate are beyond their control.

Hou Hsiao-hsien is a Taiwanese film director, screenwriter, producer and actor. He is a leading figure in world cinema and in Taiwan's New Wave cinema movement. He won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1989 for his film A City of Sadness (1989), and the Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015 for The Assassin (2015).

“Dust in the Wind” will be screened in Chinese with English subtitles. There will be a follow-up discussion at the end of the screening.

Entrance fee is VND30,000 per person and free of charge for members of Heritage Space Library. One free drink and popcorn will be served.

FILM Storyteller is a screening program that concentrates on the diversity of accesses and ways of reading film from the vision of a storyteller.
