Connection by Fate 超級公民

1998, 116 minutes, M
Directed by Wan Jen 萬仁

Starring musician Chang Chen-yue 張震嶽/Ayal Komod 海雅谷慕, this is one of the few films of Taiwan’s famed New Cinema movement to consider indigenous Taiwan. Director Wan Jen hauntingly explores intersections of the afterlife and daily struggle in a gritty and lonely fin de siècle Taipei.

Best Music, Asia Pacific Film Festival (1998)
