Description

The University of Helsinki will be hosting its first Taiwanese American Film Festival this June! From June 6th to June 15th, this festival will showcase five short films by Taiwanese Americans filmmakers and a feature documentary about the Taiwanese diaspora experience. This will be the first time these films will be screened together for a Nordic audience. Ranging from dramedy to horror to documentary, these stories explore returning back home and the (re)connection and disconnection with one’s family, culture, and language in an unfamiliar familiar environment.

The Helsinki Taiwanese American Film Festival hopes that through film, audiences may get a glimpse through the Taiwanese American lens of the push and pull of cultures and traditions between old and new homes, and coming to terms with one’s multi-cultural identity.
