Arthouse director pushes Taiwan film limits

From Screen India:

With sexually explicit scenes featuring full-frontal nudity and oral sex, Tsai Ming-liang knows The Wayward Cloud is pushing the limits of Taiwan’s censors and his audience.

“I thought it would be banned. Part of me wanted it to be banned so the film would become a subject of discussion,” Tsai said in an interview earlier this week…

Tsai’s new film, about a male porn star torn between a colleague and his girl friend, won a Silver Bear for outstanding artistic contribution at the Berlin International Film Festival in February.
