Asian Pop-Up Cinema in Chicago to feature seven Taiwanese films

Six new films from Taiwan are set to light up the Asian Pop-Up Cinema (APUC) season 18 in Chicago, the United States. Director Hsu Li-da (許立達), rising actress Kira Skelly (尹茜蕾), director Yu Jhi-han (游智涵), and actor Joseph Huang (黃聖球) are invited by the Taipei Cultural Center in New York to introduce “A Boy & A Girl (少男少女)” and “The Young Hoodlum (壞男孩)” at the festival on March 23.


In addition to recent releases and features, APUC season 18 will present a special screening of “God Man Dog (流浪神狗人).” Directed by Chen Sing-ing (陳芯宜), the film won the Tagesspiegel Readers’ Jury Award at the 2008 Berlin International Film Festival. The multi-story drama about everyday people was described as “the most successful at the interweaving storyline technique and a touching look into a unique, albeit brief, period in the lives of a group of normal people,” according to Andrew Skeates in his review in Far East Film when the film released in 2007.


The APUC Season 18 Taiwan cinema showcase is scheduled to run between March 23 to 29, with “U Motherbaker (我的婆婆怎麼把OO搞丟了),” “On the Train (南方, 寂寞鐵道),” “Chinhua’s Blossom Untold (一蕊金花),” and “God Man Dog” streamed online and “A Boy & A Girl”, “The Young Hoodlum”, and “After School (成功補習班)” shown in cinemas.
