100TH BIRTHDAY WISH
Directed by Lien Chien Hung
Her nosy family wants to celebrate her birthday, but grandma just wants to live – and die – in peace.
Maso Chen / Asia Pop! / Taiwan / 2017 / Documentary, Drama / 73 minsBecause of cultural mores pertaining to the afterlife, medical schools in Taiwan don’t receive many cadaver donations. So when wife, mother, and now “silent teacher” Hsu Yu-e leaves her body to science, her death sets off two years of waiting, grief, but above all gratitude between her family and a medical school.
