Sneak Previews, East & West Coast

We’ve screened the film in Boston and San Francisco, now we’re on our way to Seattle for the last sneak preview of the fine cut on April 5th at Grand Illusion Cinema in the University District. We’ll have a little brunch reception (coffee and Voodoo Donuts!)  for Art for a Free Taiwan before the film. Click here if you want to buy tickets!

Meanwhile in Taiwan, the democracy movement has gained a great deal of traction from students who have been occupying the Legislative Yuan for the past week. Today there were demonstrations in support of the student protest all over the world: London, Vienna, Paris, Frankfurt, Sydney, Washington DC, NYC, Boston, San Francisco are all standing up for democracy in Taiwan.

Watching the film in San Francisco after the protest began, I was struck with how the central issues of the protest are echoed in the film even though filming was completed two years ago. Here’s hoping that the protest continues to gather steam and the world will come out on the side of democracy in Taiwan!

Nice turnout for the screening in San Francisco on a gorgeous sunny day. Forgot to get a picture of the poster exhibit, which is to the left of this shot. The poster of China swallowing Taiwan was a big hit since it hits the central issue of the ongoing protest.
