Harvard Film Archive Film Screening – Tabooed Initiation: Two Early Films by Mou Tun-Fei

January 21, 2022 - January 31, 2022

I Didn’t Dare Tell You / Bugan gen ni jiang, 78 minutes, Taiwan, 1969. Mandarin with English subtitles.

The End of the Track / Pao Dao Zhongdian, 90 minutes, Taiwan, 1970. Mandarin with English subtitles.

Recently discovered by the Taiwan Film & Audiovisual Institute, I Didn’t Dare Tell You and The End of the Track debuted at the 2018 Taiwan International Documentary Festival and have since toured the world. Encompassing a wide affective spectrum—from repressed yearning to mournful regrets, from abusive love to homoerotic desire—they represent the tabooed initiation of a visionary director whose versatile career has yet to be fully appreciated.

This virtual series was curated and coordinated by Harvard University’s East Asian Film & Media Working Group.
