TAIPEI, Nov. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Amid preparations for this weekend's Golden Horse Awards, the world's largest Chinese-language film awards ceremony, TaiwanPlus has released an exclusive documentary on the director internationally famous Tsai Ming-liang. The documentary, titled "The Pursuit of a Cinematic Dream," offers a unique insight into the progression of Tsai's directing philosophy. It is one of the only cases in which the director of the New Wave appears in a documentary about his work.

The Malaysian-born, Taiwan-based director is considered one of the foremost filmmakers of Taiwan New Wave cinema, a movement in the Taiwanese film industry following the lifting of martial law in the 1980s. Tsai's home in Taipei, the TaiwanPlus original documentary is an intimate reflection of Tsai's personal relationship with film, exploring how her experiences translate to the screen. "I feel like my way of filming is changing," he says as he watches the evolution of his style in relation to his age. "I've started to think of it more like painting... I've also seen the world this way."

TaiwanPlus Acting CEO Michael Yu believes that Tsai Ming-liang's films offer an authentic insight into Taiwanese culture. "It is an honor that Tsai Ming-liang's documentary premieres on TaiwanPlus," he said. "Her honest perspective and her keen artistic eye are a cornerstone of Taiwanese cinema."
