A Breath From The Bottom
Directed by Chan Ching-lin
A BREATH FROM THE BOTTOM is a dramatic and realistic story that centers on the father-son confrontation against a political backdrop that you don’t usually see in Taiwanese dramas. The father is among the peasant protesters to storm the capitol; the son is an ambitious cop to keep control. Dynamically shot in a black-and-white, journalistic style, the film smartly ties together a series of social movements in Taiwan over the past decade. Directed by the upcoming filmmaker and scriptwriter Chan Ching-lin, A BREATH FROM THE BOTTOM won the Best Director Award at the 2013 Taipei Film Festival.
