On a journey to Chiang Mai, Paris, Buenos Aires, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Beijing, and back to Taipei, a remarkable list of filmmakers, critics and artists, including Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Olivier Assayas, Marco Müller, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Hirokazu Kore-eda, Jia Zhangke, Tian Zhuangzhuang, Wang Bing and Ai Weiwei, tell us what this cinema means to them, how it influenced their work, and what is left of that legacy today. Flowers of Taipei sets out to assess the global influence of Taiwan New cinema.
