100 DAYS Officially opens theatrically in LA at the Laemmle Playhouse 7 in Pasadena on Friday, December 12, 2014. Filmed in the village of Qinbi on the Taiwanese island Matsu, it’s a beautiful love story that also highlights Taiwan’s culture, settings, and traditions.
Mark your calendars as packing every showing that opening weekend is crucial for the movie to have a longer run in the theaters! Director Henry Chan will be at various Q and A’s that weekend. His credits include NBC’s new show A to Z, SCRUBS, MOESHA, KING OF QUEENS.
How does one change the path of life within 100 days? Like, by getting married. Bo Dan, a cold-hearted telecom executive returns to the Matsu Islands for his mother’s burial and knocks into such an unfamiliar tradition: get married in 100 days in order for the parent’s spirit to depart peacefully. Stranded by the typhoon in his long estranged hometown, Bo is forced to rethink his calloused corporate life, and face the rekindled passion for his now-engaged childhood sweetheart. The debut feature by Emmy-winning TV director Henry Chan, 真愛100天 電影 100 DAYS successfully integrates local Taiwanese flavors and deeply felt homecoming revelations to its rom-com finesse.
TaiwaneseAmerican.org interviewed Producer Weiko Lin earlier this year. Weiko’s personal life story and the tragic death of his mother in 2007 serves as the inspiration behind his original play and this recently released movie.
