Taipei´s Bohemians: The Life of Theatre


() Director: Wang Chung-shung, Taiwan, 2003, Mandarin, Chinese, Bunun, English / English subtitles, 75 min

Even if it were alone for its selection of protagonists, this documentary about current Taiwanese theater deserves attention. Instead of representative faces theaters offer to its audiences, the director of this film focuses on six people of different professions. They may not be as visible under normal circumstances, but without their passion, determination and stubbornness, quality theater could never exist. We meet directors, actors, set designers and clerks. Often, several of these professions are handled by a single person. What are their problems? What is the situation of modern art theater in Taiwan?

Hung Hung (1964)
