The Skywalk Is Gone

The Skywalk Is Gone


A girl (Shiang-chyi Chen) looks for a street vendor in Taipei. But she can’t find him since the Skywalk is Gone.

"The Skywalk is Gone is a hodge-podge of nostalgias, a culmination of desires for the cinema and the city that never find their objects of yearning. The state of Taiwanese cinema today, trapped between the economic realities of local exhibition and the legacies of its critical success, keeps seeking refuge in the state of the city and the cinema even though they are ever-changing and intangible, existing only in memory." – Brian Hu, Senses of Cinema
