Thunder Lannyang

China (Taiwan) (MIFF 2005, documentary)

Director: Hsueh Yuting

[Thunder Lannyang] is an elegant portrait of Taiwanese music and family tradition interwoven with a personal history. Jin-tsai Chuan is one of the few remaining exponents of Baguan traditional opera. As Taiwan changes irreversibly, his music and life story offer insights into a forgotten world.
