EAFFI 2024: YANG: YI YI

Director: Edward Yang

173 mins, Taiwan, 2000, Digital, Subtitled


Sublime magnum opus Yi Yi (A One and a Two . . .), winner of the Best Director Award at Cannes, follows a middle-class family in Taipei over the course of one year, beginning with a wedding and ending with a funeral. Whether chronicling middle-age father NJ’s tentative flirtations with an old flame, or precocious young son Yang-Yang’s attempts at capturing reality with his beloved camera, Yang deftly imbues every gorgeous frame with a compassionate clarity. Warm, sprawling, and dazzling, this intimate epic wanders contemporary Taipei, moving from one member of the Jian family to another and back again.

The film will be introduced by film producer Chuti Chang.
Screening as part of the Edward Yang Season presented with the support of the Taiwan Film and Audiovisual Institute, the Taipei Representative Office in Ireland. 
Very special thanks to Janus Films and NG Yuk Lin.
