Family is the ones we love. But even if you love your partner, son and sick grandmother, one tragic event is enough to become a mere tenant in your own house full of memories. Still, memories are the only thing no court can take from you. This empathetic, romantic drama and three-time winner of Taiwan's national Golden Horse awards reveals the devastating consequences of social prejudice and discriminatory legislation.
A Taiwanese director, screenwriter, actor and producer, he began shooting experimental 8mm films while studying economics. His feature debut, Do Over (2006), was screened at the Venice IFF. His fourth film, Dear Tenant, once again demonstrates his talent for directing actors and emphasis on marginalised social themes, making him one of Taiwan's leading contemporary auteurs.
