Kang lives alone in a big house, from which he looks out onto the treetops lashed by wind and rain. Non lives in a small apartment in Bangkok, where he methodically prepares traditional dishes from his native village. When Kang meets Non, gentle caresses soothe their pain and loneliness as they find consolation in each other. Acclaimed director Tsai Ming-Liang’s experimental feature extends the boundaries of abstract realism, distilling his subtle cinematic language into its purest form. Days won multiple awards at major film festivals internationally, including the Teddy Jury Award at the 70th Berlinale. Kang is played by the magnetic Lee Kang-Sheng, who once again allows us to engage with the passage of time in all its painstaking richness.
London: The screening is followed by an online Q&A with the director Tsai Ming-Liang.
