Poetry, literature, painting and old film clips converge in this lyrical, unusually designed film essay about Le Moulin, the Taiwanese poets’ collective which protested in the 1930s against the cultural superiority of the Japanese occupier and the domination of realism in poetry.

Featuring an ambitious formal approach from first-time filmmaker Huang Ya-li, the film screened at CPH:DOX and Rotterdam and won the 2016 Golden Horse Award for Best Documentary.

LE MOULIN is now available to stream exclusively on MUBI. Watch here
