Treasures for the Yale Film Archive: What Time Is It There?
What Time Is It There? (Tsai Ming-liang, 2001, 116 mins)
The romantic, melancholy quest for connection is explored through long takes, parallel narratives, and spectral swaths of color. “This wonderful, one-of-a-kind movie hops from Taiwan to France, from tragedy to deadpan comedy, and, in its mysterious conclusion, from the worldly to the otherworldly” (David Ansen). In Mandarin and French with English subtitles.
Presented in 35mm by the Yale Film Archive with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
