-Taiwan-

rly late with this one, sorry. basedgod said this super rare

taiwanese cinema is a weird beast, so in the spotlight thanks to those new wave classics that served as transition for many, including me, yet seemingly so undercovered once we go into the 2000s and contemporary times. while i wont claim i did any deep research yet, i knew out the gate i probably wont find a lot of tangible info on their female directors through western resources, and sure enough i didn't. it feels halfassed to post this without a little historical info blurb, but ill keep looking and adding.
