Retro Taiwan at Fantasporto 40

RETRO TAIWAN 2020  THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE

 

For the third consecutive year, the official entity that represents Taiwanese Cinema co-operates with Fantasporto, with a selected group of restored or even just recovered films from its archive. This is a unique opportunity to know this cinema, so rich and innovative. After approaching the great classics in 2018, the role played by woman in the cinema which helped their emancipation in society in 2019, Fantasporto present a program in this 40th edition of the festival, THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE, a group of classical films  dating back to 1969 or 1998, till more modern ones, even from 2019.

 

“Fantasporto has continually bringing Portuguese audience the innovative essence of Taiwan Cinema throughout 1960s to 1980s in the past three consecutive years, started from Wuxia genre, Taiwan Black movies to commercial Taiyupian(Taiwanese-language films). This year, in celebration of the festival’s 40th edition, Taiwan Cinema Toolkit and Taiwan Docs based under Taiwan Film Institute present further a retrospective program "THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE" with a selection of classic films dating back to 1969 until modern day, both narrative features and documentaries, by the auteurs and directors of new generation. Suggested by the name title, this program consists of three different dimensions to look into people’s fate, or more interestingly the cycle of the film itself. There are films which highlight the capricious nature of life and even embody the incarnation within the plots. There is also a controversial “sequel” documentary which is struck by an unplanned narrative and forcibly exposes the underlying power relation among the director, his subject and the unspeakable destiny of documentary making. Furthermore, there are filmmakers invited to create shorts applying the footage materials derived from Taiwan Film Institute’s archive or getting inspiration from TFI's restored classics. Through these shorts, we believe the revival of archival footage is on its way and retro can be a new fashion.”
