Taiwanese American Professionals in Los Angeles will be co-presenting “Au Revoir Taipei” at the opening of the LA Asian Pacific Film Festival!
“AU REVOIR TAIPEI (Yi Ye Tai Bei)”
(Taiwan/United States/Germany, 2010) Dir./Scr.: Arvin Chen
In this wildly imaginative and delightful comedy from rising writer-director, Arvin Chen, two young strangers encounter a cast of eccentric characters in search of big dreams. Filled with humor, action and a good dose of food, it all plays out on the colorful city streets and night markets of Taipei. It’s the beginning of a wild night, at the end of which they realize that leaving Taipei will only take them further away from true love. A love letter to Chen’s newly adopted city, the film recently won the NETPAC Award at the Berlin Film Festival, where it had its world premiere.”
