International Film Series: "Touch of the Light"
Olin B Lecture Hall

NWU's International Film Series begins with the 2012 Taiwanese drama, "Touch of the Light."

Based on true events related to the life of Taiwanese piano prodigy Huang Yu-Siang (Siang played by himself), this is a story of inspiration, discovery and love. Born to a rural family in Taiwan unprepared for the birth of a blind son, Siang was a curious and precocious child. Touch and sound was everything to him. With the love of his mother and support of his family, he grew up with no barriers - that is until he had to face the real world as he left his family behind in order to attend university where he had to compete on the same playing field as the sighted students and to find his own way. He soon crossed paths with Jie (Sandrine Pinna), a beautiful but frustrated cold drinks vendor who dreams of being a dancer, but whose struggles against the harsh realities of her life render her helpless. However, when she witnesses Siang's fearless determination and understood his optimism and inner peace, she is inspired and determined to hold on to her dream. "Touch of the Light" is a story of dreams, determination, love, and believing in yourself.

All films are screened in Olin B Lecture Hall, located one block east of 50th Street and Saint Paul Ave. The film is not rated. It is free and open to the public.
