Treasures from the Yale Film Archive: WHAT TIME IS IT THERE?

April 5, 2023

What Time Is It There? (Tsai Ming-liang, 2001, 116 mins)
The romantic, melancholy quest for connection is explored through long takes, parallel narratives, and spectral swaths of color. "This wonderful, one-of-a-kind movie hops from Taiwan to France, from tragedy to deadpan comedy, and, in its mysterious conclusion, from the worldly to the otherworldly" (David Ansen). In Mandarin and French with English subtitles. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

Free and open to the public. All attendees must be asymptomatic and fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (including boosters when eligible) and should be prepared to show proof of vaccination. Masks are recommended.
