Tsai Ming-liang op IFFR
TSAI Ming-liang (1957, Malaysia) studied theatre and film directing in Taiwan. He has written several scripts and also worked as a theatre director. He won the Golden Lion in Venice with Vive l'amour (1994) and the Silver Bear in Berlin with The Wayward Cloud (2005). His films are recognisable by their long shots, sparse dialogue and the prominent presence of running water, or the sound of this. Many of Tsai's films have screened in Rotterdam.
