Missing Pictures Episode 2: Tsai Ming-Liang, The Seven-Story Building
director: Kuan-Yuan Lai, Clement Deneux
original title: Missing Pictures Episode 2: Tsai Ming-Liang, The Seven-Story Building
running time: 12 min.
synopsisMissing Pictures is a 5-part documentary that gives directors a chance to tell the story that would otherwise never be told. Tsai Ming-Liang, the Taiwanese maestro of slow cinema, doesn’t have a real “missing picture”, but what he does have are childhood memories, so vivid that it is impossible for him to film. The filmmaker seizes the medium of virtual reality to go back to the Malaysia of his childhood, when his grandparents took him to see two movies every night. Rather than telling us about an unmade film, Tsai Ming-Liang transforms the exercise into a making-of of his entire film career.
