Four years after the death of her sister, director Lee Pei-Yu begins to document her family’s daily life. Year after year, life goes on but touched with lingering grief. This documentary is an intimate look at how Lee’s family copes with bereavement and learns to move forward, accepting that death is part-and-parcel of life. The documentary competed in the 2016 Taiwan International Documentary Festival.
Free admission. Registration is required.
The screening of Still Life is supported by the Taiwan Film Institute and the Taiwan Cinema Toolkit.
The Alt Screen series features Asian cinematic stories that offer critical perspectives and interpretations of global issues. In this second edition, Alt Screen: IN TRANSIT explores the mental, physical and spiritual journeys taken by modern man, through stories that examine the notions of travel, transience and transition.
