‘Maverick’ and ‘Zinnia Flower’ Set as Taipei Festival Gala Titles

Taiwanese titles “Maverick” and “Zinnia Flower” will be presented as the opening and closing events of next month’s Taipei Film Festival (June 26-July 12, 2015).

Directed by Cheng Wen-tang, “Maverick” is a police drama in which a new detective clashes with his older and more experienced partner. It stars Jian Man-shu, Gin Oy, Chris Wang and Chuang Kai-hsun. “’Maverick’ has a very well-developed plot, and the actors’ performances are fantastic. I hope audiences relive the thrill they enjoyed when they watched their first films,” said TFF programmer Kuo Ming-jung.

“Zinnia,” which stars Karena Lam, Stone, Nana Lee and Bryan Shu Hao Chang, starts with a car accident that robs the main characters of their partners, and follows the consequences of bereavement. The picture is directed by Tom Lin Shu-yu, one of Taiwan’s most reliable directors and who previously appeared at the TFF with “The Pain of Others,” “Winds of September” and “Starry Starry Night.”
