Lecture Intro
For the last fifteen years, Lori Chen has served as the curator of Late Night Movie Theater at NTHU. She has experimented with curating film festivals of various formats, making Late Night Movie Theater more than a university film theater. In this lecture, Lori Chen will share stories behind the curation of the festivals and how she realizes Late Night Movie Theater's ideal by "bringing fine cinema to the doorsteps of the audience." She will also discuss how the meanings of life, spaces, and people in and around the theater are redefined in the process.
