Salute! Sun Yat-Sen acquired by Facet Film Distribution
Facet Film Distribution is proud to announce its new acquisition, Salute! Sun Yat-Sen, from the master of Taiwanese coming-of-age drama Yee Chih-Yen (Blue Gate Crossing). After 12 years, he makes his long-awaited return to screens with this quirky high-school comedy, rich with political and social undertones.
“I’m poorer than you”, says Lefty
The film follows a youth troupe that embarks on an outlandish mission of stealing and selling the “Country Father” to pay off the debt of high-school tuition fee.
This hilarious heist caper speaks out for the destitute and successfully throws a sincere punch for the young generation. A combination of intellect and silliness with a drop of The Angels' Share (Ken Loach) thrown in is precisely the rich state that Salute! Sun Yat-Sen inhabits.
SALUTE! SUN YAT-SEN WILL BE RELEASED ON DVD & ON DEMAND JULY 27
