A SUMMER AT GRANDPA’S
Hou | 1984 | Taiwan | 100m
“Hot and Humid: Summer
Films from the Archives”
6:30 at MoMA

“Starkly redolent of Victor Erice’s The Spirit of the Beehive in the way it filters the political and moral complexities of the world though the eyes of children to paint an unsettling portrait of a society that is far from being the paradise it appears to be on the surface. Hou observes, with equal intrigue, both the carefree indulgence of the children in social games and the stark reality that interrupts these activities, as if trying to remind them that the best part of their lives is over.”
Srikanth Srinivasan, The Seventh Art [Read More]
