Fade In / Fade Out: Fantastic Worlds - The Fantasy of the Deer Warrior (1961, Taiwan)

Brought to you by National Library Board and Asian Film Archive

Journey with us through fantastic worlds of Asian films from the 1960s - 2000s in this series of Fade In / Fade Out. From the absurd and laughable to the bizarre and downright grotesque, these stories reflect the power of the human imagination when fears and desires take the form of superstition, deities, mythical creatures and the supernatural.

大俠梅花鹿 The Fantasy of the Deer Warrior (1961, Taiwan)

Director: Chang Ying

Cast: Ling Yun, Pai Hung, Lam Lam, Hsu Yu, Ou Yun-Lung

PG / B&W / Taiwanese Hokkien / English and Chinese subtitles / 87 min

The peaceful lives of the forest animals are disrupted by an attack from a pack of wolves. The tragic events that follow prompt the Sika Deer to go on a journey to seek revenge. The sly Fox who is exiled for her sinister plots against Miss Deer, conspires with the Wolf to launch a vengeful attack on the rest of the animals.

This playful Taiwanese film features a mash-up of numerous Aesop's Fables punctuated by musical interludes and live-action actors in animal suits traipsing around a forest setting.
