Directed by Hou Hsiao-hsien | 2001

With With Shu Qi, Jack Kao, Chun-hao Tuan

In this new monthly series, a prominent artistic or cultural figure talks about the film that inspired their passion for cinema, followed by a screening of the film.

Hou Hsiao-hsien’s neon-splashed reverie is a dreamlike drift through the night world of early 2000s Taipei. From the year 2011, the wayward Vicky—a bar hostess caught between a jealously possessive boyfriend and a gangster—looks back on her life 10 years earlier, rendered by Hou in a narcotic haze of trancy techno, sumptuous slo-mo, and ravishing iridescent imagery.

Inspired by the Screen Epiphanies series at London's BFI Southbank

Before the film, Durga Chew-Bose will discuss how Millennium Mambo inspired her love of cinema.
