With or Without You
Short Fiction | Taiwan | 2009 | 30 mins | Dir. CHOU She-Wei | Mandarin, Taiwanese + Eng Subtitles

A daughter sees her recently deceased mother in a dream. The mother does not want to be buried beside her husband. But why? There turns out to be a reason.

During a funeral ceremony, a not all that bright young man seems to fall asleep, but in fact he's more involved than the rest. Through his body, a soul makes contact with life and the hidden past of the family is finally revealed.

The maker wanted to focus attention on the position of women in her mother's generation

Awards & Festival Selection:

Asia Short Film Jury Award, International Women?s Film Festival in Seoul, 2009, International Film Festival Rotterdam, 2009

Grandma?s Hairpin
Documentary | Taiwan | 2000 | 90 mins | Dir. HSIAO Chu-Chen | Mandarin + Eng subtitles

This stunning documentary captures the unique life stories of veterans who are among some 500,000 soldiers who left their families and followed Chiang Kai-shek?s retreat to Taiwan in 1949, while in their early 20s or late teens. When the government finally lifted the ban on private visits to China about 40 years later, they found themselves in an awkward limbo where they could no longer adapt themselves to living in China, while putting down their roots in Taiwan also proved to be challenging.

Awards & Festival Selection:
Best Documentary, Golden Horse Awards, 2000. Taiwan Awards, Taiwan International Documentary Festival, 2000, Seoul International Film Festival, Asian Pacific Film Festival, Amsterdam International Documentary Festival, The 51st Asian Pacific Film Festival.
