Movie of the Day: Days before the millenium (2022) by Teng-Yuan Chang

A long, decade-spanning panorama of the migrant experience of Vietnamese women in Taiwan. The 1990s saw a wave of emigration of women from Vietnam, who then married in neighbouring countries. They included Van Tue, who has been cut off from her home and robbed of her independence by her jealous husband and now plans to escape. Via formal breaks and shifts in perspective, the days before the turn of the millennium are unusually contrasted in the film with the changes which the migrant women have since managed to wring for themselves. At the same time, the film traces the history of a country that has always been under threat from its Chinese neighbour. 2 nominations international film festivals (Osaka Asian Film Festival 2022, Taipei Film Festival 2021).
