Edward Yang / 1984 / 237 minutes / Not Rated

Among the most praised titles in all contemporary film, this singular masterpiece of Taiwanese cinema, directed by Edward Yang, is set in the early sixties in Taiwan. A Brighter Summer Day is based on the true story of a crime that rocked the nation. A film of both sprawling scope and tender intimacy, this novelistic, patiently observed epic centers on the gradual, inexorable fall of a young teenager (Chen Chang, in his first role) from innocence to juvenile delinquency, and is set against a simmering backdrop of restless youth, rock and roll, and political turmoil.

The Crosstown Arts Film Series showcases a diverse collection of independent, international, historically significant, artistic, experimental, cult, underground, and documentary features.
