SDAFF: Taiwan Film Showcase

November 9, 2018 @ 6:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Join us on Friday, November 9th for an evening of Taiwanese cinema at UCSD! The San Diego Asian Film Festival will be showing Dear Ex, as well as two short films presented in virtual reality.

We will meet at GPS at 5:00pm and walk over together to the Price Center theatre. The VR films are shown on a first-come, first-serve basis at the Price Center, so we’ll check those out before the showing of Dear Ex at 7:00 p.m.

Please RSVP here for your FREE tickets!


Dear Ex (誰先愛上他的)

Feature film, 100 minutes | 7:00 p.m. @ Price Center Theatre
Best Narrative Feature, Best Actress, Best Actor, 2018 Taipei Film Festival

What initially begins as a story of grief and betrayal slowly reveals a touching exploration of acceptance and sacrifice. At times heartbreaking, ironic, and playful, Dear Ex looks at the complexity of three people who must navigate strange living arrangements, fresh grief, and new definitions for love.
