TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwanese director David Lim won Best Director for his film “Fight”
at the International Film festival in Nice last Saturday (May 12). David and his lead actor Ming Shuai Shih, attended the festival.
“I focus on making films I believe are good for mankind, to create a world with more forgiveness, compassion, integrity and love,” says David Lim.
“Fight” is a silent film, beautifully shot almost like a Manga cartoon in gentle colors and lots of slow motion. It’s dark, yet magic, and with a clear light of hope leading the little boy to safety.
The protagonist is based on one of Lim’s friends, Ken Chyan, who grew up in the U.S, surviving bullying, violence and gun fights. [FULL STORY]
