The film Nina Wu (灼人祕密) by Taiwanese independent director Chao Te-yin (趙德胤), better known as Midi Z, has been selected for screening at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival to be held from May 14 to 25 in France.
Nina Wu, a psychological thriller based on a screenplay by actress Wu Ke-xi (吳可熙), and starring Wu, Vivian Sung (宋芸樺) and Kimi Hsia (夏于喬), was shortlisted for the film selection called Un Certain Regard, according to an announcement posted on the festival’s Web site on Thursday.
“Tears bursting out immediately, OMG #cannes !!!” Wu wrote on Facebook shortly after the announcement.
