The
reaction of the audience was more passionate and welcoming than I have
expected. This was something out of my expectation. They even discussed on the
story with me after film screening. Moreover, the curator of the film festival
and a group of Taiwan directors guided me to taste the food from Taiwan small
food stalls after screening session. The whole trip was such a fruitful and
pleasant one.”

dream after
attending 38th Golden Harvest Awards Film Festival in Taiwan, under the
sponsorship of NAE.
