Special Presentation

On top of showcasing the Jurors’ Films and a work from the Asian Docs Co-production Network Project, this programme also pays homage to two influential Taiwanese documentary filmmakers. Director LEE Meng-zhe (1965–2018) focused on Taiwanese labour rights and social issues in his early works, and later produced aesthetically innovative films and video art across all genres while engaging in political activism; Director Mickey CHEN (1967–2018) paved the way for Taiwanese gay cinema and gay rights advocacy since the late 1990s, breaking ground with his highly acclaimed autobiographical novel. With these special screenings, we commemorate directors LEE and CHEN, who both passed away in 2018.
