That tradition will continue with this year’s 14th annual TWFF, which runs for free online from Friday (September 11) to September 20, with the Canadian premiere of the psychological drama Nina Wu.
Directed by Myanmar-born Midi Z, Nina Wu was screened at last year’s Cannes Film Festival and was written by and stars Taiwanese actor Wu Ke-Xi. Her character, Nina Wu, endures pain, exploitation, and humiliation as she tries to launch an acting career.
In addition, Wu will participate in a videotaped panel discussion with Carleen Kyle, president of Women in Film and Television Vancouver, to discuss how women are treated in the film industries in Taiwan and Canada. The audience size is being limited to 300, with free registration through twff.ca/. [FULL STORY]
