Cities of Last Things is a drama film, directed by Ho Wi Ding and released in 2018. A coproduction of companies from Taiwan, China, France and the United States, the film opens with the suicide of Zhang Dong Ling and then tells, in reverse chronological order, the story of three key incidents from his life leading up to the fateful decision. Each of the three segments draws from a different genre: the first segment is a science fiction story set in a dystopian vision of the year 2035, the second a film noir segment focusing on Zhang's earlier job as a police officer, and the third a melodrama about Zhang's childhood encounter with a local organized crime boss. Zhang is portrayed by Jack Kao in the first segment, Lee Hong-chi in the second, and Hsieh Chang-Ying in the third. The cast also includes Huang Lu and Louise Grinberg. The film premiered in the Platform program at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, and was named the winner of the Platform Prize. ()
