The River

The Taiwanese filmmaker Tsai Ming-liang – who will join us at Eye this month for a masterclass – regards non-communication and loneliness as the key theme of his films, as he has often explained with a broad grin. In The River Tsai’s regular actor Lee Kang-sheng plays a young man in a taciturn family in metropolitan Taipei.  

The River, which won the Silver Bear for Best Director at the Berlin Film Festival, is screened in a new digital restoration. 

Eye screens all films by the Taiwanese filmmaker to accompany Tsai’s VR project The Deserted.
