when i was at college i studied experimental non-fiction filmaking
among other things. at one time i was planning to go to film school
but i lacked the funds and the ego to follow through with that plan.
somehow i ended up an english teacher. anyways, what follows is a
selection of cinema sites. i'm trying to find more sites on chinese
cinema apart from the countless sites on hk action films. its hard to
get real info on taiwanese independant film though there are some
exceptions. what follows is what i have found so far as well as
other cinema links i like.
