New Vision, Young Generation: Revival of the Taiwanese Cinema
UBC students of UBCLE are introducing the 1st Taiwanese Film Festival in Vancouver.
From Friday April 6 to Sunday 8, 2007, they will be presenting 6 movies, all from a new generation of Taiwanese film makers who are redefining the Industry on the island:
Do Over: hope arising amidst the chaos of Taipei city life.
Jump! Boys: leaping dreams of Yilan's little gymnasts.
Eternal Summer: friendship and passion, distilled by the waters of Hualian.
The Rhythm in Wulu Village: the fading voices of the Taidong Bunun aboriginal heritage.
Blue Cha Cha: social outcasts' vibrant dance of life at the heart of Kaohsiung.
Let It Be: unsung songs of the heroes amongst the Tainan paddy fields.
(all movies are subtitled in English)
Each movie represents a different region of Taiwan, a different vision of the multi-faceted country. From the traditional life in the paddy fields to the life of teenagers in bustling Taipei, you will discover, or re-discovered the richness and kindness of its people.
Visit TWFF website for more information on the movies, showtime and box office. This is a must-see and everyone in Vancouver this week-end should come over to UBC and enjoy a piece of Taiwan's kindness. Plus, there's a free rice ball for everyone (if you come early!) who comes to watch "Let it be".
