Ming Wong and the French New Wave:
Hiroshima Mon Amour


Cinema Arts
Location:  Auditorium
Language:  French film with Chinese subtitles

"Ming Wong and the French New Wave," held throughout the artist's exhibition "Next Year" at UCCA, puts Wong's films in conversation with those of directors who have inspired him, allowing audiences to explore the connections on which much of his work is based.

Hiroshima Mon Amour, directed by New Wave stalwart Alain Resnais and adapted from Marguerite Duras's eponymous novel, tells a love story between a French actress and Japanese architect. The film employs copious flashbacks and voiceovers to combine and interweave the past and present, experience of the real and the experience of narrative, discussing the trauma which war brings. The film can be seen as an influence on Ming Wong's latest work, now on view, which also employs these techniques.
