Director Yee Chih-yen‘s 2014 movie Meeting Dr. Sun won both the Best Picture Award and the Audience Awards at the Osaka Film Festival in Japan this Sunday. The film previously won the Best Original Screenplay Award at the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival last year.
“The honor means I and my team will have to keep working hard and keep cheering for Taiwan’s movie industry,” he said.
His last directing effort was the 2002 film Blue Gate Crossing, in which he launched both of Gwei Lun-mei and Bolin Chen‘s careers. For his new film, he used new actors Zhan Huai-ting and Matthew Wei.
