Masterclass Tsai Ming-liang
Tsai Ming-liang will be at Eye to give a masterclass in which he will also talk about his recent work and projects. Eye screens all films by the Taiwanese filmmaker to accompany Tsai’s VR project The Deserted.
Tsai will reflect on his recent works and projects in this masterclass and share his thoughts on his experiences developing, making and screening his work.
Tsai Ming-liang (1957) revitalised cinematic language by purely relying on the power of the image. He subtly shows that loneliness is the price we pay for our consumerism. Everybody yearns in silence, but the longing for real contact is rarely fulfilled.
In addition to Tsai's latest VR work The Deserted Eye offers a retrospective of Tsai’s works, an oeuvre spanning almost 25 years. Eye also releases digital restorations of Tsai’s first three films to theatres across the Netherlands: Rebels of the Neon God (1992), Vive l’amour (1994) and The River (1997).
