NOVEMBER 10, 7:00 PM DAYS (2020, Taiwan, 127 min | Tsai Ming-Liang)
Named the best film of 2020 by Cinema Scope magazine, Taiwanese master Tsai Ming-Liang’s newest work has been accurately hailed as “pure rapture… a full body massage for the soul” by Film Comment. Two solitary men—one a middle-aged man grappling with chronic pain, the other a young immigrant in Bangkok—meet in a hotel for a moment of transformative healing and catharsis. With a profound sense of patience and understanding, Days movingly captures the isolation of contemporary urban life, while reaching out for a human connection. “A quietly aching stunner from one of our great filmmakers… alert and alive and gorgeously sensual. With Days, Tsai Ming-Liang has made something exquisite and rare” (Los Angeles Times).
A program of MMoCA’s education department, Spotlight Cinema is curated by Mike King and generously funded by an anonymous donor, maihaus, and Venture Investors, LLC. + Add To Calendar
