電影Kano即將在11月18日來到波特蘭放映

Dear All,

Taiwanese Association of Greater Portland (TAGP) and Northwest Film Center are proud to co-present a special screening of the Taiwanese blockbuster film Kano on November 18th, 2014.  After the film, there will be an opportunity for the audience to interact with the director of the film, Umin Boya, during the Q&A session.  The event will take place at the beautiful Northwest Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium located inside the Portland Art Museum.

Kano is the most anticipated Taiwanese film of 2014, directed by Umin Boya and co-produced by Wei Te-Sheng and Jimmy Huang. The film depicts a historical period during the Imperial Japanese Colonialism of Taiwan.  In a rural agricultural town of Southern Taiwan, a multiethnic baseball team composed of an unlikely mix of Han Chinese, Japanese and Aboriginal Taiwanese from the Kagi Agriculture and Forestry Public School also known as “Kano.”  They overcame extreme odds to achieve what seemed to be next to impossible for a group of high school aged young men.   “Kano” went from being an underdog team in the league to advancing to the competitive final championship games in Japan.  Kano represents the possibilities of people overcoming cultural and ethnic differences to show one another respect, acceptance and understanding in order to achieve a common goal in solidarity.  Kano is a must see film.  

★Kano won the Best Audience Award as opening film at the Osaka Asian Film Festival in 2014

Director of the film Umin Boya also starred in the historical epic “Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale” (2011) which was a contender for the nomination the best foreign film category in the Academy Awards.

Kano是一部2014年由馬志翔執導、黃志明和魏德聖監製的台灣電影。這部電影描述臺灣日治時期嘉義農林棒球隊的傳奇故事。一支由台灣人、日本人和原住民組成默默無名的棒球隊,原本實力一勝難求的球隊經由教練嚴格的訓練加上奮戰不懈的精神,排除困難和挑戰,打進了日本甲子園決賽締造了歷史。Kano電影說明了當一群-人能排除隔閡,不分族群,共同奮戰不放棄的精神加上擁有互相瞭解、尊重、與包容的團結-心,便能達到共同的目標。
