Chinese Spring Film Festival

Chinese films take center stage at The Shang's Spring Film Fest

Committed to providing endless pleasures for mall goers, premier lifestyle destination Shangri-La Plaza holds the very first film festival for this year—the Chinese Spring Film Festival. Featuring four unique and critically acclaimed Chinese films, the event runs from February 3 to 9 at the Shang Cineplex, Level 3.

Directed by Wang Xiaoshuai, In Love We Trust tells the story of Meizhu and Xiaolu, who were once happily married. The couple eventually divorced and remarried other people, but their lives cross again when their daughter Hehe is diagnosed with leukemia. Their loyalty, relationships and love are put to the test as they go on a journey to find a bone marrow transplant donor. This film won the Silver Bear at the 2008 Berlin Film Fest.

The multi-awarded Cape No. 7 follows the gripping journey of frustrated-rock-star-turned-

substitute-postman Aga, who attempts to form his own band for a concert organized by Japanese talent agent Tomoko. However, they suddenly find themselves going back in time, when a Japanese schoolteacher left his heart with a Taiwanese girl that he left behind. This romantic-comedy-musical is an innovative take on Taiwan's history as a Japanese colony.

The World is an eye-opener for everyone wondering about the consequences of globalization. `The World' refers to a theme park where visitors are invited to take a look at the rest of the world without having to leave Beijing. The visitors are dazzled by the spectacular images of the world's most iconic structures and places, struggling beneath the shadows are the lonely workers, including dancer Tao and security guard Taisheng, who serve as the main focus of the story.

Issue-laden Tao Lan is the center of the story in Seventeen Years. After killing her stepsister by accident and being convicted for murder seventeen years ago, she is given a new year's furlough, signaling a fresh new start. But her parents astonishingly don't go back for her. She befriends a prison guard and together, they go on a journey to help her be reunited with her family. The question is: will the tragedy and heartache stand in the way of reconciliation?

The Spring Film Festival is presented by the Ricardo Leong Center for Chinese Studies at the Ateneo de Manila University in partnership with Ateneo Celadon.
