  • A Chronicle of Light, Shadows, and Memories— Taiwanese Film Festival

    Date:Now until 02/25 (The Gallery closes on 01/02、02/05)
    Venue:Fuzhong 15 - New Taipei City Documentary Cinema

    Films reflect the social values and lifestyle of different eras. Through films, one learns of the change and development of Taiwan throughout the decades.

    From Taiwanese Dialect to Romantic Comedies
    ‘Xue Ping-Gui and Wang Bao Chuan’, the first film in the Taiwanese dialect, was
    born in 1956. Since then, more than thousands of films spoken in the country’s mother tongue were made between the 1950s and 70s. ‘Taiwan was subjected to a Martial Law period after the arrival of the Nationalist Government. In the 1960s and 70s, realistic and patriotic films, most of which set in the Taiwanese countryside, began to flourish. Also in the 70s, a wave of romance flicks, most of which adapted from Chiung Yao’s romance novels, also dominated the Taiwanese Cinema.

    International Breakthrough of the Taiwanese New Waves
    Taiwan’s New Waves Cinema is an artistic milestone widely recognized by the
    international cinema community. It began with “Time Story” and “The Sandwich
    Man.” Young cineastes at this time were heavily influenced by the western
    cinema and movement of Taiwan’s regional literature. As a result, they expected
    the society to be more liberal. They were not afraid of tackling controversial social issues and interpreting the history of Taiwan with their own point-of-view.
    The year 1987 saw the lifting of the Martial Law, and Hou Siao-hsien’s creation of “A City of Sadness.” Not only did film addressed one of the most difficult themes in Taiwan history, it also won the Golden Lion Award during the Venice Film Festival.

    Blossom, Taiwan
    However, the Taiwanese film industry entered a decade of stagnation in the latter half of the 1990s. The situation did not change until 2008, when ‘Cape No 7’ became the most profitable film in Taiwan’s history. The film’s success also propelled more cineastes to explore the opportunity of commercial films. Meanwhile, documentary films, with their strong focus on social issues, have also garnered more freedom of creativity in the Post-Martial Law era.
