Taiwanese novelist who killed herself in Paris at 26, Qiu Miaojin, remembered and reassessed in RTHK film - South China Morning Post

Think of Qiu Miaojin, and the first thing that comes to mind is the Taiwanese writer’s melodramatic death. In June 1995, the lesbian novelist killed herself in Paris shortly after completing Last Words from Montmartre , a semi-autobiographical novel in which the protagonist decides to commit suicide. She was 26. A Chinese-language RTHK television documentary about her was broadcast this month as a precursor to a longer version in English that will be released later in the year by director Evans Chan Yiu-shing. It should encourage viewers to look past the tabloid sensationalism and to focus on her literary talent, Chan says. “I am not interested in. personalities,” the director says. The documentary doesn’t quite accomplish what it set out to do, with the director deciding to inject a heavy dose of histrionics. In one bizarre scene, Qiu’s alter ego – a crocodile – is seen stroking Anthony Gormley’s nude male sculpture that stood in Queen’s Road Central last year while declaring her inability to desire a man. It would have made Qiu wince, since she was particularly piqued by local media’s obsession with Taipei’s then largely underground lesbian community. But to be fair, it would not be possible to discuss Qiu’s books without some acknowledgment of her personal struggles since they are largely autobiographical. The decision to include Qiu in the series was based on the impact of her work rather than her biography, says producer Lo Chi-wa. We cast the net wide and end up finding some really interesting writers,” he says. The Hong Kong director behind the highly acclaimed film To Liv(e) and, more recently, Raise the Umbrellas – documentary of the Occupy Central protests and the birth of localism in Hong Kong – first heard of Qiu while making a 2014 film about Hong... Hong Kong cinemas won’t show Occupy documentary, filmmaker fears. “I was interviewing the Taiwanese novelist Lo Yi-chin about Dung and he brought up the fact that Qiu was one of the contemporaries he most admired. That was the first time I came across her name,” says Chan, now based in New York. Serendipitously, it was at that moment that the first English translations of Qiu’s novels started to appear. Last Words from Montmartre , translated by Ari Larissa Heinrich, was published by the New York Review of Books in. Source: www.scmp.com
