Vive L’AmourApril 10-26, 2015

Astoria, N.Y. - Tsai Ming-liang, the defining artist of Taiwan's Second Wave of filmmakers, will be the subject of a major retrospective at Museum of the Moving Image, from April 10 through 26, 2015-the most comprehensive presentation of Tsai's work ever presented in New York.

Distinguished by a unique austerity of style and a minutely controlled mise-en-scene in which the smallest gestures give off enormous reverberations, Tsai's films comprise one of the most monumental bodies of work of the past 25 years. And, with actor Lee Kang-sheng, who has appeared in every film, Tsai's stories express an intimate acquaintance with despair and isolation, punctuated by deadpan humor.
