Also, with gratitude to Brian Hu and the SDAFF organizers, I'm looking forward to introducing three films at the Taiwan Film Showcase (info. and schedule here) at UCSD’s Price Center Theater on Saturday the 9th and Sunday the 10th.
I'll be introducing TO MY DEAR GRANNY (Saturday the 9th at 1:45pm), THE SANDWICH MAN (Saturday the 9th at 4:05pm), and A BREATH FROM THE BOTTOM (Sunday the 10th at 1pm).
It will be an honor to introduce THE SANDWICH MAN in particular, having met Huang Chunming (黃春明), the author whose stories are adapted to the screen in this wonderful and important Taiwan film.
Meeting Huang Chunming at UCSB in 2008 while attending a literature conference as a Ph.D. student.
