Edward Yang RIP

July 1, 2007

He was little known outside of art film fantatics and Taiwan, however Yang directed one of the best films of the last twenty years, Yi Yi. Though the film racked up a bunch of awards, he never was able to capitalize on the critical success. IMDB lists a film as announced, and I don’t know the details however seems like it will never be realized. He suffered a bout with cancer, and so he hadn’t been working for several years. If reports are correct, he got the disease not long after Yi Yi was released.
