Event Details

Screening in association with the exhibition ’Heaven and earth in Chinese art: treasures from the National Palace Museum, Taipei.

Taoist spells cast in video game arcades, horoscopes for high-stakes business deals, deities graffitied on Taipei underpasses. Welcome to the Gallery’s new film season, Neon gods.

Our latest survey of Sinophone cinema features works by some of the most significant directors of the 20th century. It includes Hou Hsiao-hsien, Edward Yang, Ang Lee and Tsai Ming-liang.

In this season, the gods of modern cinema are not on the temple altar. They cruise the neon-lit streets of nocturnal Taipei. With a cast of rebels, action heroines and queer outsiders as our guides, join us on a journey through the best of Chinese-language cinema presented on imported 35mm prints.
