Who was the Buddha? What did he teach? What rituals do Buddhists perform in everyday life? These are just some of the questions that a major exhibition at the Museum Rietberg addresses.

«Closing Time – Taipei bei Nacht» – Movie Screening @ Houdini Kino
Mar 22 – Mar 27 all-day

Taipei by Night

Mr Kuo and his wife Mrs Lin live, like many other people in the pulsating Taipei, at night. They run a small restaurant in which the most different sleepless figures gather: Families, lovers, taxi drivers, tattoo artists and street dogs. Her life follows a quiet, nocturnal rhythm – until one morning on the way home from the market Mr Kuo takes another turn-off and drives towards the sea …

In her documentary film, director Nicole Vögele captures the quiet moments that are forgotten in the daily hustle and bustle, thus creating a delightful visual meditation.
