A documentary film, ?My fancy High Heels?, by female director Chao-ti Ho has been selected by The Museum of Modern Art this year as one of the films to be screened at Documentary Fortnight 2011, where it will premiere on Feb. 23rd and 24th next week.
This documentary is centered on globalization and humanity. The story tells the process of manufacturing a pair of high heels. From the upstream slaughter house, through the assembly line in the contract manufacturing firm, to the downstream fashion store in Manhattan NYC, the fashion capital, this kind of procedure has been rarely noticed but is truly a story full of compassion. Taiwanese director Chao-ti Ho is professional in dealing with story-telling technique and unique in camera shooting. In this film, there are plenty of moments of calm and quiet, which narrate both happiness and sadness. It is like a poem floating amidst the affairs of the world.
This talk, along with translation, with the director is sponsored by Council of Cultural Affairs. Refreshments will follow. It is welcome to all those who are interested in documentary film.
The premieres are going to take place in The Museum of Modern Art. All are welcome to attend these premieres, with details below:
