Taïwan Focus

Taiwan, a small island that everybody knows but which most of us find hard to locate on a map, is especially renowned for its economic growth, its high level of technological development and its various and breathtaking landscapes. In recent years it has also reinforced its cooperation and mutual trust with continental China. But diehard movie-lovers have their own way to define Taiwan, citing names like Hou Hsiaohsien, Edward Yang, Tsai Ming-liang or even a certain Ang Lee. At the occasion of the centennial of the Republic of China ( Taiwan ), the Bifff has decided to put its spotlights on this country and its thousand treasures in its own, original way. We’re not going to kick in open doors about the quality of Taiwanese cinema, but we’ll give you the opportunity to discover a world of unique traditions.
