Tsai Ming-Liang

Text by Jean-Pierre Rehm, Olivier Joyard, Daniele Riviere. Interview with Tsai Ming-liang.

The first in-depth study of filmmaker Tsai Ming-liang's sensual and solitary universe.
Acclaimed Taiwan-based filmmaker Tsai Ming-liang is renowned for creating some of the most nihilistic and erotic films of the 1990s. His films often use water in its multiple capacities—cleansing, raining, nourishing, flooding—to symbolize his character's emotions. Depicting the human body as a mysterious, malleable machine consuming and excreting on its own volition, he turns bodily functions into metaphors for loneliness, desire, decay, and escape. His obsessive and isolated characters give his films a bleak outlook, but they also embody a wry sense of absurdist humor.
Taiwanese filmmaker Tsai Ming-liang (born 1957) has directed a dozen full-length films, inlcluding Rebels of Neon God, Vive l'Amour (Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, 1994), The River (Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival, 1997), The Hole, The Wayward Cloud, Face and Stray Dogs (Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival, 2013). In 2013, Tsai was voted by UK newspaper The Guardian as number 18 of the 40 best directors in the world.
