Taiwanese Film Festival

Lucerna plays a host to Taiwanese cinema

The fans of not only Taiwanese cinema have something to look forward to as Lucerna will be presenting from the 10th to 14th of May a festival of Taiwanese films.

Organised by the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Prague (TECO), the festival will start on Wednesday the 10th of May with CHUNG Mong-Hong’s film GODSPEED (2016) followed by an official reception. Altogether Lucerna will show 8 films, giving the audience a chance to a sample some of the best that contemporary Taiwanese cinema has to offer. This includes the films STEP BACK TO GLORY (2013), BLUE GATE CROSING (2002) and SOUL (2013).

On the rare occasions when Taiwanese films are shown in the Czech Republic, there are considered a mere exotic curiosity. Yet Taiwanese cinema has a long tradition and is presently also successful internationally. Taiwanese films are far from being just provincial. They may mirror the experience of life on the island but their message is universal.

The festival will be presenting three films of the director CHUNG Mong-Hong, THE FOURTH PORTRAIT which deals with the trauma of a child coming to terms with his traumatic past experiences, SOUL about coming to terms, on both a religious and a psychological level, with the loss of someone close and GODSPEED, a gangster movie about people striving to live a normal life in spite of finding themselves in a highly dangerous situation. CHUNG Hong-Mung has received a number of awards both at home and abroad and his work nicely illustrates how a piece of cinematographic work can be closely identified with its geographical origin, yet allows a spectator from a completely different country to identify with the protagonists.

Childhood, becoming an adult and the difficult life of Taiwanese youngsters are frequent subjects of films of the so called New Taiwanese Wave. Will shall find the theme in the films HANG IN THERE, KIDS, A TIME IN QUCHI and BLUE GATE CROSSING. (Jan Rybar, the festival art director)

Don’t miss the opportunity of an exceptional cinematographic experience, a chance to get to know contemporary Taiwan in all its complexity.

The tickets are 100 crowns for each film, the films are all in Chinese with Czech and English subtitles.

Hlavní hrdinkou nového snímku Bohdana Slámy (Divoké včely, Venkovský učitel) je vdova Hana (Zuzana Kronerová), která po setkání s otužilcem Broňou (Pavel Nový), začíná pozvolna měnit svůj stereotypní život.

BFF: I, Daniel Blake I, Daniel Blake

More info

The socially engaged, disturbingly topical drama tells the story of Daniel Blake, a 59-year-old joiner from Newcastle, who falls ill with heart disease and so applies for sickness benefit. While he strives to plough through the absurd red tape involved in getting financial assistance, and being compelled to seek a job in defiance of the doctors’ recommendations, he meets the single mother Katie and her two children. To escape a hostel for the homeless in London, the fatherless family must move into a flat some 300 miles away. Each in their own way, Daniel and Katie do their best to overcome the hardships, while retaining their own dignity. The latest film by the well-co-ordinated tandem of the director Ken Loach and the screenwriter Paul Laverty is an outspoken criticism of the social-assistance machinery, which results in the humiliation and degradation of individuals, reducing them to an irrelevant ledger entry. This year, I, Daniel Blake deservedly received the Palme d’Or, the highest prize awarded at the Cannes Film Festival. Show more
