Born to a Chinese family in Malaysia, Tsai Ming-liang came to Taiwan during the flowering of the film industry’s New Wave and, standing on the shoulders of the groundbreaking directors Edward Yang and Hou Hsiao-hsien, became the defining artist of the country’s Second Wave. Distinguished by deadpan humor, an intimate acquaintance with despair and isolation, and a minutely controlled mise-en-scene in which the smallest gestures give off enormous reverberations, Tsai’s films comprise one of the most distinctive and monumental bodies of work of the past 25 years.
