Featured Film:

Rebels of the Neon God at the SIFF Film Center

The 1992 debut film from singular Taiwanese director Tsai Ming-liang opens in a newly restored version at SIFF this week. It stars Lee Kang-sheng as Hsiao-kang, a lonely young man who lives with his parents and his haunted by water and the films of François Truffaut. We’ll see his story unfold in film after film for the next two decades, but this is where it all starts. In the precisely static long-takes that are the hallmark of his minimalist style, Tsai tracks Hsiao-kang’s growing obsession with some local teenaged toughs through the arcades, malls and apartment complexes of Taipei. Our Review.
