Platform Asia at RCA Film Night Series: Screening 'This Shore: A Family Story' and 'A Maiden's Prayer' by Taiwanese filmmaker Tzu-An Wu, followed by a conversation between Tzu-An Wu and George Clark.
From the US cold war to a Chinese diner in Washington D.C., Taiwanese filmmaker Tzu-An Wu retraces the fragmented memory of his family by following the discovery of the bond between a painting and his own story of displacement. Platform Asia presents two films — This Shore: A Family Story 此岸：一個家族故事 and A Maiden's Prayer 少女的祈禱 by experimental filmmaker Tzu-An Wu as part of the RCA Film Night Series. Characterised by the entanglement of memories, friendship, family and Asian diasporic identities, the programme brings new perspectives to understanding Taiwan and its history. And considers filmmaking as an artistic exploration of finding roots and remembering.
Being shortlisted for the 2021 Taipei Arts Awards, and both premiered at the Golden Horse Film Festival, this will be the first time two films to be screened parallel in the UK to explore the magic of assembling memories in East Asian filmmaking.
Curated by Platform Asia.
Delivered in association with the Royal College of Art.
