Stray Dogs Teaser

Today's trailer is for a Taiwanese film from acclaimed filmmaker Tsai Ming-liang called Stray Dogs, which has already earned quite a bit of praise playing at Venice and TIFF last year. Tsai Ming-liang is known for his long takes, and this teaser plays up some of his static shots from the film while the rain pours down incessantly. "With each successive shot in Stray Dogs, he shows us a devastating portrait of a family living hand-to-mouth in the city’s underbelly," explains Scott Tobias in his capsule review from TIFF. It's a short teaser, but a powerful one presenting a film that looks heart-wrenching but mesmerizing. Take a look below.

Watch the official US teaser trailer for Tsai Ming-liang's Stray Dogs, originally from The Dissolve:

An alcoholic man and his two young children barely survive in Taipei. They cross path with a lonely grocery clerk who might help them make a better life. From the TIFF 2013 guide: "Imbued with mystery, sly humour, and an enormous heart, the latest film from visionary director Tsai Ming-liang (The Wayward Cloud) links together a series of sumptuously composed scenes that tell the story of a broken family living on the margins of Taipei society." Stray Dogs is directed by award-winning Malaysian-Taiwanese filmmaker Tsai Ming-liang, and first premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals last year. For those interested, The Dissolve reports that Stray Dogs will arrive in limited US theaters starting September 12th this fall.
