Events in Penang / Penang


Isle to Isle: Father is a documentary recording the inheritance mission of Taiwanese glove puppeteer, Chen Hsi-huang at the age of 88 years old, as well as exploring the conflicts between him and his father, Li Tien-Lu, the legendary Taiwanese glove puppet master. With a strained relationship with his father, Chen has his mother's surname.
A vivid fan of puppetry, director Yang Li-chou shot a documentary on the backstage of puppetry. This documentary film showcases the marvellous skills of Chen in bringing a glove puppet to life in the big screen, trying to inject the extraordinary charm of traditional puppet show so as to bring it back to ordinary people.
