"A Brighter Summer Day"
DIRECTED BY: EDWARD YANG
1991 | 237 mins | Taiwan | Mandarin/Min Nan/Shanghainese w. English subtitles
Format: DCP

Among the most praised and sought-after titles in all contemporary film, this singular masterpiece of Taiwanese cinema was directed by Edward Yang. Set in the early sixties in Taiwan, A BRIGHTER SUMMER DAY is based on the true story of a crime that rocked the nation. A film of both sprawling scope and tender intimacy, this novelistic, patiently observed epic centers on the gradual, inexorable fall of a young teenager (Chen Chang, in his first role) from innocence to juvenile delinquency, and is set against a simmering backdrop of restless youth, rock and roll, and political turmoil.
