Biography

Tsai Ming-Liang was born and raised in Kuching, Malaysia. In 1977 he moved to Taiwan and went to on study film and drama at the Chinese Culture University. After graduation he wrote and staged plays, then for nearly ten years he worked in TV and developped scenarios, including THE KID, which marked his move towards cinema and during which he discovered his favourite actor Lee Kang-Sheng. With VIVE L'AMOUR, which won the Golden lion Award at the 1994 Venice Film Festival, Tsai was acclaimed as a major new voice in Asian cinema. Over the series of films that followed, he came to be recognised as a new modern master of cinema to stand alongside his fellow Taiwanese Hou Hsiao-Hsien and Edward Yang.
