Director Wang Tong’s epic career spans over 60 years, best known for his Taiwan trilogy: StrawmanBanana Paradise, and Hill of No Return. Where the Wind Settles is an ambitious film that captures the diaspora experience of his and his parents’ generation, many who fled to Taiwan after the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) lost the civil war to the communists. This turbulent chapter in China’s history is told through a story of personal tragedy, longing, and strength. In Mandarin and Hoklo with English subtitles. Introduction by Professor Guo-Juin Hong. (2K DCP Presentation)
