Set in early 1960s Taiwan, A Brighter Summer Day is based on the true story of a crime that rocked the nation. Edward Yang’s patiently observed epic centers on the gradual, inexorable fall of a young teenager (Chang Chen, in his first role) from innocence to juvenile delinquency, and is set against a simmering backdrop of restless youth, rock ’n’ roll, and political turmoil. Among the most praised, sought-after titles in contemporary film, this singular masterpiece of Taiwanese cinema is both sprawling in scope and filled with tender intimacy.

Digital restoration by the Cineteca di Bologna/L’Immagine Ritrovata laboratory, in association with The Film Foundation’s World Cinema Project, the Central Motion Picture Corporation, and the Edward Yang Estate.
