Spy and Suspense: Taiwanese-Language Film Festival

Saturday, February 27 | 12:00 AM - 12:00 AM

Virtual Event

Partnering with the UK-based Taiwanese-language film festival "Taiwan's Lost Commercial Cinema: Recovered and Restored," EALC will showcase Six Suspects and The Best Secret Agent as part of our "Spying on East Asia Conference."

Made against the backdrop of the Cold War, these films demonstrate clear foreign influences as well as the filmmakers' endeavor to present the local experience of Taiwan on the silver screen. A perfect combination of noir and spy film, this series will take you on a journey back to 1960s Taiwan with the thrill of passion and mystery.

Film screenings will be available for asynchronous viewing online between Feb 21-27, 2021. Registration is required to receive a link to the films (RSVP below).

Sponsored by the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures; Taiwan Ministry of Education; King's College London; Ministry of Culture, Taiwan; Taiwan Film Institute
