A BRIGHTER SUMMER DAY

GULING JIE SHAONIAN SHA REN
Taiwan | 1991 | Edward Yang

Taiwan, 1991, Edward Yang

This magnum opus by the late, great Taiwanese master Edward Yang (Yi Yi) is perhaps his masterpiece. Long out of release (we showed it only once in 1997, ten years before Yang’s untimely death at age 59), it’s a four-hour coming-of-age saga that focuses on a Taiwanese boy’s experience of gang violence and young love during the 1960s. It’s also a portrait of a society in transition, one searching for its own identity independent of the hand-me-down cultures of China, Japan, and America. “Devastating…A masterpiece.” –Time Out. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. 4K DCP. 237 min. Special admission $12; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, age 25 & under $9; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
