Notice: Tsai Ming Liang

As published in Cinema Online:


30 Dec – Internationally-acclaimed director, Malaysian-born Tsai Ming-Liang, is returning to make a film in his home country for the first time. Born in Kuching, Malaysia, Tsai graduated from the Drama and Cinema Department of the Chinese Cultural University of Taiwan. Since then, he has built a successful career of film and arts, including “Vive l'Amour” (1994), his second feature film which won the Best Picture Award at the 1994 Venice Film Festival.

The director is scheduled to be in Malaysia next year to make the movie “Dark Circle”. Shooting will begin around March 2006 in Kuala Lumpur.

On New Years' Eve tomorrow, those who are interested to participate in the making of the movie by Tsai Ming-Liang can go for an interview at B-1-2, Happy Mansion, Jalan 17/13, 46400 PJ, Selangor, from 11am to 3pm. Bring along your resume and a copy of your photograph (passport size) to the venue as the production company is seeking for production assistants and interns to join the production crew.

Cinema Online, 30 December 2005


” Another outstanding director is Tsai Ming-liang. Awarded a Golden Lion at Venice for Vive l'amour (1994), followed by a Silver Bear at Berlin for The River (1996) and an invitation to compete at Cannes with The Hole (1998), the Malaysian-born Taiwanese director intends to return to the land of his birth to make his PPP project, Dark Circles. As in all of Tsai's films, the focus is on an outsider caught in a web of sex and money, of events and intrigue beyond his control. When the identity-seeking protagonist suffers a black eye, it serves as a giveaway symbol of his illegal status.”
