It’s been a long time coming, but Tsai Ming-liang’s 1992 film “Rebels of the Neon God” is finally getting a U.S. premiere thanks to Big World Pictures, and Indiewire has the exclusive trailer.
The film centers on a young man named Hsiao-kang who defies his parents wishes and runs away to downtown Kapei where an unfortunate meeting leads him down a path of trouble.
Big World Pictures’ director Jonathan Howell noted: “We’re delighted to be instrumental in finally bringing this overlooked classic the theatrical release it has so long deserved. The HD restoration looks terrific. We hope the release will spark new interest in Tsai’s lesser known early films.”
The film premieres April 10 at the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Quad Cinema in New York City. Watch the trailer below:
