Between the Tides: Taiwan New Cinema

September 30, 2023 – March 31, 2024

Taiwan New Cinema went down in the annals as a revolutionary movement, one that canonized the works of several auteurs and redefined Taiwan’s film culture. While the movement is often regarded as the fruit of a few cinematic wunderkinds, this online film festival sheds light on lesser-known filmmakers who too shaped the Taiwanese filmmaking landscape in the 1980s. Through eight films, we offer a broader perspective on the development of Taiwan New Cinema, bridging the gap between classics and overlooked gems.

“Between the Tides” will be available on TaiwanPlus from September 30, 2023 to March 2024 on the TaiwanPlus website.
