You Are the Apple of My Eye

Directed by Giddens Ko

To celebrate Chinese New Year, we are pleased to present this special screening of You Are the Apple Of My Eye. Breaking box office records across Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and China when it was released in 2011, You Are the Apple of My Eye is a teenage coming-of-age romance set in Taiwan, spanning the mid-1990s to mid-2000s. Director Giddens Ko brings his semi-autobiographical novel to the big screen, looking back on the growing pains of adolescence and young adulthood with bittersweet nostalgia and gentle, self-deprecating humour.

Supported by the Confucius Institute, in association with the Chinese Film Forum UK.
