Director Wei Te-sheng’s latest film ‘BIG’ to debut in Canada

Award-winning Taiwanese director Wei Te-sheng (魏德聖) is embarking on a tour in North America with his latest film, “BIG.” The film is set to premiere at the SilverCity Richmond Hill Cinemas in Toronto, Canada, on Apr. 4.


"BIG" revolves around the lives of six children residing in a pediatric oncology ward known as Room 816, exploring themes of death, friendship, love, departure, and reunion through six storylines.


Wei Te-sheng, known for his acclaimed works such as the romantic film “Cape No.7” (海角七號) and the historical epic “Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale” (賽德克·巴萊), explores the meaning of life through "BIG" as it focuses on the journey of children battling cancer.


The screening event in Toronto is co-hosted by the Taiwan Film Festival in Toronto, the Pride Asian Film Festival, and the North America Taiwanese Film Tour Festival. Following this premiere, the film will be showcased in Winnipeg on Apr. 8 and Vancouver on Apr. 9.
