1998, 116 minutes
Directed by Wan Jen 萬仁
Starring musician Chang Chen-yue/Ayal Komod, this is one of the few films of Taiwan’s famed New Cinema movement to consider indigenous Taiwan. Director Wan Jen hauntingly explores intersections of the afterlife and daily struggle in a gritty and lonely fin de siècle Taipei.
