On Saturday the 7th November at 7pm, The Anime and Manga Society and the Mandarin Society are collaborating for the first time to bring you the Taiwanese anime film:
Xingfu Lushang/On Happiness Road:
''Chi earned her American dream after persevering with her studies in Taiwan. Following her grandmother's death, Chi returns to her family on Happiness Road, where she begins to feel nostalgic about her childhood and starts to contemplate the meaning of "life" and "home". What is happiness? Will Chi find her own happiness?''
This will be shown on a stream provided by the Anime and Manga Society (see below for instructions on how to join)
We encourage anyone with an interest in Mandarin, anime, or Asian (more specifically, Taiwanese) culture to come along for what is a deeply provoking film about about identity and the meaning of life, all set within the context of post-martial law Taiwan.
