Warehouse Film | Wed 29 Apr | 8.00pm
EXIT is the triumphant directorial debut from celebrated cinematographer Hsiang Chienn, featuring an award winning central performance by Tsai Ming-Liang’s muse, Shiang-Chyi Chen (Best Actress, Golden Horse Film Festival 2014). Ling (Chen), a typical Taiwanese woman in her forties has just lost her job in a garment factory. She spends most of her time taking care of her hospital-bound mother- in-law. Her absent husband, working in Mainland China, never returns her calls and her rebellious teenage daughter pays no attention to her. Frustrated and weary, Ling is unexpectedly diagnosed with early-onset menopause after noticing her periods have stopped. Desperate to escape her mundane life, she becomes aware of an injured man with bandaged eyes in the hospital bed opposite her mother-in-law. Her increasingly intimate interactions with this stranger promise to rekindle Ling’s dormant desire, leading to a series of out-of-character episodes. Flashed with moments of black humour, EXIT is a genuine portrait of a woman trapped between two generations, struggling between tradition and modern society.
