Director

Yang Li-Chou

2017 / Mandarin/Taiwanese / 99 minutes / DCP / Color,B&W

What do filial piety and reverence for the old mean in a world transformed? Taiwan director Yang Li-Chou (The Moment, 39th) showed his sensitivity to the elderly in his moving documentary on dementia, The Long Goodbye (2010). Here, he focuses on a single family, art and tradition, as finger puppeteer Chen Hsi-Huang wrests his identity from his father Li Tien-Lu (The Puppetmaster, 1993) to start his troupe at 79, but also faces questions of who will follow him in a life and labor of love.
