“Ye-Zai” (Taiwan, 2012)

Directed by Tseng Ying-ting

Taiwan’s economic development has made it a regional magnet for new immigrants along with new social problems and new stories about them. A new local profession has emerged as well: bounty hunters who catch illegal and runaway foreign workers. But when one bounty hunter, Ye-Zai, is sent to catch his own family’s runaway Thai maid, who is he really chasing?

Screenwriter: Chen Yuli, Tseng Ying-ting. Cinematographer: Hsu Fu-hsiang. Editor: Li Chun-hung. Cast: Shih Ming-Shuai, Sajee Apiwong, Phanet Phongsai, Wu Pong-fong, Huang Caiyi.

“Pinoy Sunday” (Taiwan/Philippines, 2009)

Directed by Ho Wi Ding

Taipei-based Malaysian filmmaker Ho Wi Ding’s comedy introduces two disadvantaged, Taipei-based Filipino migrant factory workers who see their fortunes possibly changing when they encounter a new, expensive sofa abandoned on a city sidewalk. Hoping the almost mythical find will change their lives (it certainly changes their day), they carry the sofa homeward; facing obstructions both logistical and cultural in the churning, polyglot metropolis.

Producer: Natacha Devillers, Morihisa Matsudaira, Mark Meily, Kenichiro Takiguchi. Screenwriter: Ajay Balakrishnan, Ho Wi Ding. Cast: Bayani Agbayani, Epy Quizon, Meryll Soriano, Nor Domingo, Dave Ronald Cheng.

35mm, color, Tagalog, Mandarin and English w/ English s/t, 84 min.
