Hou Hsiao-Hsien

Hou Hsiao-Hsien: born in 1947; makes rigorously minimalist dramas; his storytelling is elliptical and his style marked by extreme long takes with minimal camera movement but intricate choreography of actors and space within the frame; collaborates with screenwriter Chu T'ien-Wen and cameraman Lee Ping-Bing (I took most of this info from Wikipedia).
