Films from China:
Solutions (Director, Kim Wai Yuen, Hong Kong, China, 2006): Short film about a man who “stamps” women he pursues. Yi Dan, a lonely woman finds that life is nothing but boredom and emotional pain. She invents a little game; sending postcards that publicize ‘crimes of the heart’ committed by uncaring men she’s never met. Yan Song, works as a washroom attendant who accidentally discovers a game of his own, stabbing women’s buttocks. The director says his film’s “mark your target-stamping-game” was inspired by the Animal Channel…
Night Out (Director, Wei Chen, Taipei, Taiwan, 2006): Short film about the myth behind the Ku-Nian Temple – Night Out focuses on the myth behind the Ku-Nian Temple “A holy land for no man” for girls who die young and whose spirits contact young male travelers, while villagers pray for their souls. One traveler falls in love with a ghost and tries to create a dialogue between the real and illusion, hunting for “touchable” reality.
Asian Task Force (Director, William Lu, Taiwan, 2008): Short film spoof of 90’s cops shows but with ‘Asians’ – In this spoof of a 90’s cop show, an elite police force is assembled to investigate Asian crimes in Southern California. In this “pilot episode” A.T.F. is on their first mission to take down one of Los Angeles’ most nefarious drug lords, Francisco Montablan.
In William Lu’s words : “With Asian Task Force, I fulfilled a long dream of mine, working in the action genre (and screening at Comic Con). Since I had just done a short with Asian mothers, I felt I owed my dad a film. Again, I was blessed with a great cast and crew. Our last project with the Sony Z1U.” See Trailer …
