Additional Information

Los Angeles premiere! LE MOULIN (Ri yao ri shi san bu zhe), Taiwan, 2015 From 1895 to 1945 Taiwan was a colonial territory in the Japanese empire. Perhaps not coincidentally, that golden age of empire was also the age of modernism around the world, a loose collection of artistic ideas that aspired to universality yet adapted to different local contexts. Le Moulin, Huang Ya-li’s systematically researched and meticulously crafted experimental documentary, reanimates the sights, sounds and words of the Windmill Poetry Collective. Founded in Taiwan in 1933 by Taiwanese and Japanese writers, the Windmill writers looked especially to French surrealism for inspiration in the midst of increasing political and military conflicts. More than any textbook or lecture ever could, Le Moulin ushers its viewers into the sensuous, experiential world of Taiwanese modernism. In person: director Huang Ya-li.
