Grasshopper Takes U.S. Rights for Tsai Ming-Liang’s Berlin Title ‘Days’
Speciality distributor Grasshopper Film has acquired U.S. distribution rights for Taiwanese auteur Tsai Ming-liang’s Days and will release the film in cinemas in 2021.
Starring frequent Tsai collaborator Lee Kang-sheng (Stray Dogs) and Anong Houngheuangsy, the Bangkok-set film is a study of loneliness that observes an encounter between two men who forget the dark side of reality for one night.
Days debuted at the Berlinale earlier this year, where it won a special mention at the Teddy Awards. It also played at the IndieLisboa and Taipei film festivals. The film is produced by Taiwan’s Homegreen Films in association with France’s ARTE and support from Public Television Service Taiwan.
