Upon discovering her uncle’s lost kung fu film, Emily Chao travels to Taiwan during Ghost Month to uncover his past. During her stay she is confronted by her family’s history of displacement. From an outdoor 35mm film screening for the ghosts to an abandoned utopian pod village, she searches for remnants of home. BRUCE TAKES DRAGON TOWN is a meditation on the experience of displacement as a form of historical disembodiment. Lost souls are immortalized through cinema.
