A CITY OF SADNESS (Hou Hsiao-hsien, 1989)

For me, Hou Hsiao-hsien is the most important living filmmaker. A CITY OF SADNESS is among his finest achievements; an epic study of postwar Taiwan's 'White Terror' as experienced by various members of a single family. Hou's sublime style - with characters frequently observed from a distance by an unmoving camera - combines rigour with delicacy, allowing us to identify intimately with the struggles of his protagonists while always remaining aware of the context that gives their actions meaning. - Brad Stevens

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
