Van Gogh's Ear (1995)

16mm / Color/ 20 min/ English/ 1995 2000 Purely16 Indie Film Festival, Taiwan 1998 “The Beat Generation Conference” Special Screening, Netherlands 1998 Taipei Film Festival, Taiwanese Shorts of the Past twenty years, Special Screening 1997 Golden Harvest Award, best film of the year 1996 New York EXPO SHOWCASE Jury Award 1995 CHICAGO International Film Festival, Merit Award SIDNEY MEYERS MEMORIAL AWARD, Best Film, Best Director, Best Cinematography and Best Editing David schwartz, the curator of the American Museum of the Moving image, has described the film as a visual smorgasbord combing editing and content to perfection with a striking and energetic with a rich spiritual vision sewing together three different sections with a stylish non-narrative form. In Wu’s work he attempts to expose the contradictions between life and art by disturbing the boundaries of fiction and reality. Wen-Chung Wu hopes that his film will inspire audience sensitivity to these contradictions. The film is constructed in three “chapters”. The two brief introductory sections lead to the final segment on Allen Ginsberg. In the film I attempted to humanize the legend of Allen Ginsberg. Passages revealing the poet engaged in common act of taking a taxi and addressing a class students present a mortal image of the poet/philosopher. These moments juxtaposed with more familiar poetic vision creates a unique portrait of this legendary figure.
