2016 Taiwan International Documentary Festival Award Winners Announced
Le Moulin won the Grand Prize of “Taiwan Competition”. The film is the first feature documentary by director HUANG Ya-li, using various kinds of experimental methods such as remaking and representing to reconstruct the bright yet fleeting destiny of Taiwan’s first modern art group, Le Moulin Poetry Society. Le Moulin is highly praised by the jury for its accomplishment of expanding the infinitive possibility of documentary film.
Grand Prize：Le Moulin
Le Moulin is a film that accomplishes a double ambition: to provide a highly detailed account of a largely unknown moment of Taiwanese cultural history through historical and archival research and to turn these discoveries into an art form in itself. So for a film that insists on the liberating power of poetry, as well as on the space of the cinema for the experience of artistically challenging documentaries, we wish to give the award to Huang Ya-li for Le Moulin.
