Celebrate Chinese New Year at HOME with Godspeed one of the best recent films from Taiwan. When Na Do, a youthful slacker looking to make some money by transporting drugs, reluctantly takes a ride in Old Xu’s clearly past its best taxi both their lives change forever as they find they are on the wrong side of the mob. Laced with the darkest of black humor Godspeed proves to be something of a tour de force, not least because of the fabulous performance of Hong Kong comedy legend Michael Hui as the world-weary Hong Kong taxi driver displaced to Taiwan.
Supported by the Confucius Institute at The University of Manchester.
This screening will be introduced by Fraser Elliott, member of the Chinese Film Forum UK and HOME Film Administration and Events Assistant.
