Open Window on TaiwanCinema - Bophana Audiovisual Resource Center
''It was a great pleasure for Bophana Center to curate for the first time a series of Taiwanese film screenings for Cambodian audience in Phnom Penh.
We entitled the screening event “Open Window on Taiwan Cinema”, wishing that the event will play a role of overture to Taiwan cinema for Cambodia’s audience who wish to explore world cinema. As for the program, we tried to select five masterpieces from different production years which showcase the diversity and richness of Taiwanese films.
Furthermore, as Cambodian Cinema and Taiwanese Cinema experienced their golden age through almost the same period of 1960s to1970s, we tried to highlight this interesting parallel via our promotional tools.
The audience highly appreciated this rare opportunity to discover and rediscover Taiwanese films in Cambodia and enjoyed the films. Viewers were notably impressed by the image quality - some of the old films have been newly restored by Taiwan Film Institute.
We would like to thank Taiwan Cinema Toolkit for this wonderful opportunity, rich in cultural encounters and exchanges.''
