    • Jean Tsien  (Director of Island in Between)



As dawn breaks over Taipei, a whole world comes to life around the Luzhou temple night market, only to be dismantled by sunrise. In COME HUNGRY, Oscar-winner Carol Dysinger creates a city symphony out of the rhythms, sounds, colors, and flavors of this ephemeral community that revolves around Taiwanese food, traditions, and identity.

- ISLAND IN BETWEEN (96th Academy Awards® Nominee )

From Taiwan's frontline amid rising tensions with China, filmmaker S. Leo Chiang weaves lyrical glimpses of local life with his own struggle negotiating ambivalent bonds to Taiwan, China, and the US. ISLAND IN BETWEEN explores the uneasy peace in Taiwan, and contemplates its uncertain future.
