Taiwanese New Wave with Mint Volcano

#143 – Taiwanese New Wave with Mint Volcano

In this episode of the podcast, Karri and Henrik join forces with director Nick Vaky and photographer Luke Liu from the Youtube channel Mint Volcano to discuss Taiwanese New Wave cinema. The quartet takes a close look at four distinct films across the timeline of the New Wave ‘movement’ from two key directors – Hou Hsiao-hsien and Edward Yang. The themes of history, sociopolitical issues, heartfelt memories and dark humor coalesce into an engaging long-form discussion.

A Summer at Grandpa’s (1984)
A City of Sadness (1989)
Mahjong (1996)
Yi Yi (2000)
