A Taiwanese director makes a film based on the myth of Salomé at the Louvre. Language barriers and the sudden news of the passing of the filmmaker’s mother in Taipei threaten the completion of the film. A surreal picture traversing time and space, Face features an all-star ensemble cast, including French New Wave regulars Jean-Pierre Léaud and Jeanne Moreau, as well as Fanny Ardant, Lee Kang-Sheng and supermodel Laetitia Casta.
Short post-screening Q&A with director Tsai Ming-Liang and actor Lee Kang-Sheng.
Face by Tsai Ming-Liang has been commissioned and coproduced by the Musée du Louvre as opus 1 of the new series “The Louvre Invites Filmmakers.” This preview is co-presented with the International Council of the Louvre.
