Busan: Double Edge Presents ‘The Kids,’ ‘We Are Family’

Taipei-based production and sales company Double Edge Entertainment brings two new titles to the Asian Film Market.

Director Sunny Yu’s “The Kids” is a teenage drama about a high school boy struggling to make life after figuring out that his girlfriend became pregnant. Recently picked up by the upcoming Tokyo International Film Festival and the Hawaii International Film Festival, “The Kids” features the supporting cast from “Partners in Crime,” Double Edge’s previous production title.

The other debut title is “Cha Cha for Twins” director Jim Wang’s “We Are Family.” “Family” is a youth comedy about three aimless college students who feel the weight of adulthood with a baby’s arrival. Screened at the Kaohsiung Film Festival and the San Diego Asian Film Festival, the Asian Film Market is its sales debut.

As producer, the company still has one production in development. Rising helmer Chang Jung-chi’s “Private Eyes,” which won a main award at last year’s Hong Kong Asia Film Financing Forum, is set to start production in early 2016.

With its distribution business of foreign films relaunched during this year’s Hong Kong FilMart, the company is also up for acquiring new titles during the Busan Market.
