"The great Taiwanese filmmaker Tsai Ming-liang has been directing exquisite examinations of alienation, isolation, and the fleeting beauty of human connection featuring his muse Lee Kang-sheng for decades. His latest film, Days—his first feature-length fiction since 2013’s magnificent Stray Dogs—will undoubtedly stand as one of his best, sparest, and most intimate works. Lee once again stars as a variation on himself, wandering through a lonely urban landscape and seeking treatment in Hong Kong for a chronic illness; at the same time, a young Laotian immigrant working in Bangkok, played by Anong Houngheuangsy, goes about his daily routine. These two solitary men eventually come together in a moment of healing, tenderness, and profound physical intimacy. Among the most cathartic entries in Tsai’s filmography, Days is a work of longing, constructed with the director’s customary brilliance at visual composition and shot through with profound empathy." -New York Film Festival(Content advisories: nudity and sexual situations)
An award-winning highlight of the New York and Berlin Film Festivals, Days is a poetic, richly textured work of slow cinema from one of the masters of the form, Taiwanese writer-director Tsai Ming-liang. Starring Tsai's longtime collaborator Lee Kang-sheng, the film traces the daily routines of two solitary men who find consolation in a brief encounter. Screening in a special, one-night presentation!
