Tigerwomen Grow Wings 《母老虎飛飛飛》

Tigerwomen Grow Wings 《母老虎飛飛飛》
83 min
by Monica Treut

Iconic German director Monika Treut here turns her lens on Taiwan, examining the lives of three women of differing generations against the backdrop of the country’s socio-political changes and the campaign for the 2004 presidential election. The film offers sensitive and affecting portraits of these strong and courageous women – the famous Taiwanese opera singer Hsieh Yue-hsia, the award-winning novelist Li Ang, and the up-and-coming young filmmaker Chen Ying-rong. Through their eyes and stories, the viewer witnesses the changes and conflict in Taiwanese society, as well as the raucous campaigning typical of Taiwan’s elections.
