Stray Dogs (Jiao you)
Lee Kang-sheng, Lu Yi-ching, Lee Yi-cheng, Lee Yi-chieh, Chen Shiang-chyi / Fiction / Mandarin
A compassionate and beautiful study of creative endurance.
A single father earns his meagre living as a human billboard while his young son and daughter scrounge for food samples in a giant supermarket. At night, the three sleep in an abandoned building. A heartfelt and formally daring work that attacks the bleakness of the contemporary world while praising the strength and vulnerability of those who still feel emotion. Acclaimed director Tsai Ming-liang (Goodbye Dragon Inn) has announced that Stray Dogs may be his farewell to cinema. [12A]
