The Tragedy of Letting Go w/ Tzu-Hui Peng and Ping-Wen Wang

Listen to our conversation with Tzu-Hui Peng and Ping-Wen Wang, directors of A Journey in Spring, from the 2023 San Sebastián International Film Festival.

TFV‘s Matt Micucci wraps up his Showcast coverage of the 2023 San Sebastián International Film Festival in Spain by highlighting A Journey in Spring from the festival’s official selection. The film marks the feature directorial debut of Taiwanese filmmakers Tzu-Hui Peng and Ping-Wen Wang, who talk about weaving a tale that explores a man’s profound grief for his late wife.

In this conversation, the directors talk about wanting to explore the theme of mortality and their film’s deliberate choices of style and pacing, and discuss the genesis of their creative partnership. (We’d also like to extend our gratitude to Luis Roucero Mayor for his translation.)

Showcast is a series of candid podcast conversations from film festivals and film markets, presented by The Film Verdict and hosted by Matt Micucci.
