Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s
THE TIME TO LIVE AND THE TIME TO DIE

7:30

Saturday, May 4

(1985) “In 1947, a man and his family leave the Chinese mainland and settle in a village in Taiwan. When the revolution comes, they decide to remain. The film spans several years of their life, recalled through the childhood of Ah-Ha-Gu, probably at least partly Hou himself. The style of this family saga is spare and simple but eloquence itself. Dotty old Grandma walks down a winding road, thinking she will soon reach her old home in China; the boy grows older and instead of playing marbles and listening to stories of the old days becomes a young man trying to prove himself on the streets.” – Derek Malcolm, The Guardian. DCP. Approx. 138 min.

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