Hometown Boy

Hometown Boy

Original Title: Gin Chen Xiao Ze
Directors: Hung-I Yao
Mandarin with subtitles
72 min min

Produced by Hou Hsiao-Hsien and bearing a touch of the master’s ability to craft moments of quiet, contemplative beauty and revelation, Hometown Boy follows artist Liu Xiao-Dong on his first significant visit back to his hometown of Jincheng in decades. The film captures Liu as he works on a project to re-paint friends who had posed for him more than 30 years earlier, creating a compelling portrait of a major artist at work, and of Jincheng.
