Three early films from Hou Hsiao-hsien coming to Blu-ray in Spring 2018


The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to announce we will be releasing a set of three early films by Taiwanese filmmaker Hou Hsiao-hsien on Blu-ray in  Spring 2018.

Cute Girl (1980) – A young bride-to-be falls for a laid-back land surveyor whilst visiting her family in the countryside. Conceived as a commercial vehicle for pop star Kenny Bee, this romantic comedy was Hou Hsiao-hsien’s debut feature.

The Green, Green Grass of Home (1982) – A substitute teacher (again played by pop star Kenny Bee) moves to a remote village, where he falls in love with another teacher at the local school.  

The Boys from Fengkuei (1983) – Three young men leave their fishing village for the city to look for work, where they face some harsh realities about growing up. The film which established Hou Hsiao-hsien as a leading figure of the Taiwanese New Wave, The Boys from Fengkuei was rapturously received in Europe and is often considered the director’s first mature masterwork.

All three films will be presented from stunning restorations, across three Blu-ray discs. Special features and artwork TO BE ANNOUNCED
