Film Series: Taipei Story

1985. Taiwan. Dir: Edward Yang. With Hou Hsiao-Hsien, Tsai Chin. 110 min.


The late Yang (Yi Yi, A Brighter Summer Day) directed fellow filmmaker Hou as one half of a young couple navigating the pushes and pulls of the Taiwanese capital’s growing pains. A new restoration elevates this quiet but powerful reflection on the modern Asian city and the allure of the American dream.
