The Electric Shadows festival wants to provide a platform for quirky Asian cinema and (visual) culture. Our program consists of two pillars: a retrospective where we highlight a country, period, maker … from Asian film history. And a current section where we program recent Asian films.
Voices of Youth. Unseen Taiwanese films of the 1960s
From April 15th to 21st, the new Asian film festival Electric Shadows presents the online event ‘Voices of Youth. Unseen Taiwanese films of the 1960s’. The program consists of a selection of Taiwanese films from the 1960s that have recently been rediscovered and restored.
The two film programs will be introduced by Victor Fan, Reader at Kings College London specializing in cinema from China and Hong Kong. On Saturday April 17, there will be a lecture ‘Mou Tun-fei and his exceptional position in Taiwan film history’, by Wafa Ghermani, expert in Taiwanese cinema, followed by a live Q&A with both speakers.
