PROGRAM NOTE
Because of films criticizing the Chinese government, director Yang can’t make films in China anymore and has been living in Hong Kong for five years like as a political refugee. With her Hong Kong husband and her four-year-old son, she appears to be living as a stable Hong Kong resident, giving lectures and planning a new film. When the movie starts, however, the family leaves for Taiwan secretly, like the characters in a spy movie. Yang′s mother, left alone in China, arrives in Taiwan as a member of a Chinese tour group. After her daughter left, the mother suffered from periodic inspections by the Chinese police and gives her daughter all the tapes she recorded. Unlike the simple title, A Family Tour, we first need to reflect the modern history of China, Ying Liang’s film journey, and his fight against oppression and to protect the freedom of artists. In that way, we can fully understand the internal affairs of this family, who have to choose Taiwan, not China or Hong Kong, for a brief family reunion. (Sung Jihae)
