Inaugural Chinese Language Film Festival Ireland to run in the IFI, Templebar
24 Apr 2017 : Katie McNeice
'The Assassin' (2015)
The festival which runs from May 11th-14th will highlight the work of master filmmaker Hou Hsiao-Hsien and his longtime collaborator, screenwriter Chu Tien-Wen.

In addition rarely-screened award-winning films by the internationally-acclaimed Taiwanese master director, it features an exclusive masterclass and post-screening Q&As. Chinese-language cinema expert Professor Chris Berry of King’s College London will lead the masterclass, which is supported by Screen Training Ireland.

Programme Director Marie-Pierre Richard:
“Hou Hsiao-Hsien has been instrumental in bringing East Asian cinema to the world stage. His subjects are intimate and personal, but his films speak to a universal, timeless human experience. We are grateful he and Chu Tien-Wen have generously accepted our invitation to visit Ireland and launch this festival.”

David O’Mahony, Head of Cinema Programming at the IFI:
“This festival gives audiences the opportunity to see the very best of modern Taiwanese cinema, alongside rarely-screened classics that form the basis of the canon of cinema from east Asia. We’re particularly excited to have Hou Hsiao-Hsien and Chu Tien-Wen visit the festival to discuss their acclaimed work.”

‘The Assassin’ will open the festival, a title which earned the Best Director prize at Cannes and the BAFTA for Best Foreign Language Film that year. It will be followed by a Q&A with the director and screenwriter.

Further screenings include ‘A Time To Live, A Time to Die’, ‘The Boys from Fengkuei’ and ‘A City of Sadness’, each of which are existential, timely and in their own way personal to Hou Hsiao-Hsien.
