Loveboat, Taiwan explores the well-known study tour sponsored by the Chinese government. Due to its reputation for college-aged overseas Chinese & Taiwanese Americans to find romance, the program is known colloquially as the “Love Boat.” The Love Boat has a rich history, and many famous alumni have passed through the program over the years, including Congresswoman Judy Chu, BuzzFeed’s Justin Tan, and singer Wang Lee Hom. Although it started out in 1967 as a small cultural program, over the years the Love Boat became harder to gain entry into than many colleges!

A novel entitled Loveboat, Taipei, will be released the same week, and its author Abigail Wen will join us for a Q&A and a book signing immediately following the film screening.

Price: $25 (includes a light reception).
