But after we made a name for ourselves we had different directions to go in, and in the last 10 years it has been pretty much individual efforts.” - Edward Yang on Taiwanese New Wave Cinema

Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Parc Central - Taipei, 2000.
In Vive l'amour
a woman is walking through a park under construction in Taipei. Five
years after seeing the film, I went to Taipei myself to see that park
and to walk that lane. It started to rain. And the rain became so strong
that I had to stay one hour under a kind of shelter. A prisoner in the
park, I finally could connect the film and the space in an intense way.“
