A Brighter Day @ Claude Chabrol Cafe
Today the hip, antique Claude Chabrol Cafe screens Taiwanese film ‘A Brighter Summer Day’ (1991) by Edward Yang. Another gritty, true story from the director of ‘Yi Yi’ (2000) and ‘The Terrorizers’ (1986), but remember the Claude Chabrol Cafe is renowned for antiques and classic cult-films, not coffee.
