Fortissimo Films picked up world-wide sales rights outside China, Taiwan and Hong Kong for Miao Miao, a Jet Tone Films Ltd and J.A. Movies (H.K.) production.
Miao Miao is the feature debut from director Cheng Hsiao Tse. Warner Bros will release the film in November in Taiwan, while Golden Scene will distribute in Hong Kong in the same month.
Produced by Jacky Pang Yee Wah, and Wong Kar Wai's Jet Tone Films Ltd, Miao Miao is Jet Tone's first film made in Taiwan.
The film stars Fan Chih Wei, Ko Chia Yen and Sandrine Pinna and follows Miao Miao (Ko Chia Yen), a shy exchange student from Japan, who struggles to adjust to her new life in Taipei.
Michael J. Werner, co-chairman at Fortissimo Films, said 'We are thrilled to work with Jet Tone and J.A. Movies (H.K.) to bring this new wave of Taiwanese cinema to the world stage. Miao Miao highlights the multi-layered and multi-sexual texture of Taiwan's dynamic youth culture.'
