TAIWAN FILM FESTIVAL

The Taiwan Film Festival is actually based in Berlin, but the third edition will be taking place online. From August 21-30 the festival will show nine films that shed light on different facets of Taiwanese filmmaking. The program features ICE POISON and CITY OF JADE, two films by Myanmar-born Taiwanese arthouse director Midi Z, whose most recent film NINA WU played at Cannes and will open in German cinemas in early September. Documentaries SMALL TALK by Huang Hui-chen and TAIPEILOVE* by German-Chinese director Lucie Lui showcase the Taiwanese LGBTQIA*-community. Furthermore, there‘s the martial art films THE GANGS, THE OSCARS AND THE WALKING DEAD (2019) and VENGEANCE OF THE PHOENIX SISTERS (1968) and TAIWAN B-MOVIES by director Hou Chi-Jan wherein he investigates the lesser-known genre of so-called “social-realism“ - crime thrillers filled with sex, violence, and female revenge heroines that were made in the late 1970s to the early 1980s in the shadow of strict censorship.
