"What makes Alice Wu's debut so pleasurable is its easy rhythms, its sly juxtapositions, and its relaxed but funny performances. A generous straight man, Krusiec gives the film emotional heft...."---Slate

Far North Premieres at the Venice Film Festival
Friday, August 31, 2007

Far North recently premiered at the Venice Film Festival. Until now not much was known about the film, but thanks to Reuters.com we now have a glimpse of the storyline.
Here's an excerpt:
Far North offers chilling lessons.
"Set in the northern reaches of Norway in a land that is almost timeless, the film begins with an act of cruelty rendered with utmost gentleness as Saiva sacrifices one of her dogs for its blood and meat. The only human she allows near her is Anja (Krusiec), a beautiful young woman she has raised since saving her life as an infant.
There is a sense of threat not only from the climate but also from the heavy boots of unleashed military authority. All is well, however, until one day a man shows up near death. Loki (Bean) is from a village far away fleeing rampaging soldiers, and to Anja's surprise, Saiva takes him in. It's not a good move."

Hope Far North will produce in Taiwan. It's pitty that I missed MK's MIT cause I'm in Taiwan. Hope I will not miss Far North.

Though we are far from USA, I saw a report about MIT produced in USA. The show got good sendoff here in Taiwan local news.

Duong suggested me to post the link here so that it will don't miss. If you are interested in it, you can see the news with video here. http://www.ettoday.com/2007/06/20/38-2114160.htm
but it's all Chinese. If you want to know the content, let me know, i can translate....

Haha! I still have to mention again here. I am also a teacher of teaching Chinese as foreign language. Can Duong you pass the information to MK. If she wants to improve her Chinese in Taiwan, I may help (actually it will be my honour)...of course it's free for her, I can just help to practice....haha! I can be reached at mail cindychang0519@yahoo.co.uk

OR any one of you would like to learn Chinese, I will also be happy to practice or teach you.

Have a nice weekend, you all.
