Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s


Sunday, May 5

(1986) “A mesmerizing tracking shot, taken from the front of a train, opens Dust in the Wind. Emerging from a pitch-black tunnel, we see bright, green, mountainous terrain in the countryside of Taiwan. As the train goes in and out of tunnels, we are transported between an urban Taipei and a rural mining village. Two young lovers from this village give up high school to work in the big city, in a nostalgic portrayal of the changing Taiwan of the early 1970s, where modernization creates disturbances in traditional life.” – MoMA. DCP. Approx 109 min.

Part of Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s Coming of Age Trilogy.
