A TIME TO LIVE, A TIME TO DIE
Hou Hsiao-hsien | ’85 | 136m
“Taiwan Stories: Classic and Contemporary Film from Taiwan”
8:45 at FilmLinc

“Hou …emerged as a leading light on the international festival circuit with A Time to Live, A Time to Die…by drawing on his childhood experiences, Hou crafted a quietly powerful account of adolescent innocence evolving into disillusionment through the cultural dislocation that is caused by enforced exile.”
John Bera, V Cinema
