The Soul of Bread – Episode 1(Hokkien & Chinese)
Kao, who previously shot the story as an award-winning television film in 2006, plans to “upgrade” the romance set in a small town bakery to a “real feature film”. He stated, “This time we will have more audience taste The Soul of Bread!”
The event also included a speed dating session with Taiwan’s increasingly vibrant film commission sector and a panel discussion with high-profile panelists from China and Taiwan.
