M+ Screenings: Restored Images from Taiwan is co-presented by M+ and Kwang Hwa Information and Culture Center, bringing together a selection of moving image works, including feature films, shorts, and newsreels. Spanning from silent films of the 1910s to a martial arts classic of the 1970s, the selected works—in Mandarin and Taiwanese—are mostly part of the Taiwan Cinema Digital Restoration Project of the Taiwan Film Institute. Together, the works demonstrate the importance of film restoration in preserving cinema culture. This weekend-long programme features pre-screening introductions by representatives of the Institute, a seminar by film restoration experts from Hong Kong and Taiwan, and a live score by Taiwanese musician fish.the for the silent film screenings.
