For the fourth year, the annual Taiwan Film Festival of Boston is excited to present four documentaries, one animation and one drama playing off the theme of Crack & Light, screening at AMC Boston Common during the weekend of October 1 and 2.
“Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.”
— Anthem “by Leonard Cohen, Canadian poet, and singer
The theme of TFFB 2022 is “Crack & Light”. We are sincerely inviting you to join us in enjoying movies and sharing the shadows and lights throughout our individual journeys. Perhaps it was a moment of remorse that gave us the endless power to move on. Perhaps it was a setback that inspired us to never let go. What does it take for us to see the bright light at the end of the tunnel? What kind of imperfection makes lives unique and complete?
The theme “Crack & Light” also conveys all our rediscoveries during the pandemic. Little did we notice how the lack of human activities gave the nature an opportunity to restore, how precious are the bonds between our families and communities, how many possibilities can remote working create, and how challenging may solitude be. On the other side of the era of the pandemic, we further cherish each other and the hard-fought reunion. Just like the “Crack” that is filled with “Light”, this shall always be a unique memory shared amongst our generation.
