Formosa Betrayed | The Story

Quote:
Inspired by actual events, FORMOSA BETRAYED is the story of FBI Agent Jake Kelly's (James Van Der Beek) investigation of the brutal murder of a Taiwanese-American professor on U.S. soil. With the help of his partner Tom Braxton (John Heard) and a sharp Chicago police detective (Leslie Hope), Agent Kelly discovers that the murderers have fled to Taiwan.

Agent Kelly is sent overseas to assist the Taiwanese government's search for the killers. Initially guided by an American diplomat (Wendy Crewson) and a Taiwanese official (Tzi Ma), he soon realizes that not only is he an unwelcome guest in a foreign land, but that something more treacherous is happening beneath the surface.

With the help of Ming (Will Tiao), a Taiwanese activist, Agent Kelly discovers the unsettling truth about the island once called Formosa, leading to dangerous and painful consequences. Agent Kelly finds himself on a collision course with the U.S. State Department, the Chinese Mafia, and ultimately the highest levels of the Republic of China government in Taiwan, where this FBI agent discovers how a complex web of politics, identity, and power affects the lives and destinies of the citizens in all three countries – including his own.

i thought we should have a thread for the movie there's so much info and pics. i put a lot in the OP, but i'll try to start a News section later!

Karen or Maddie, could you edit in "Jake Kelly" to the thread title? so it reads: Formosa Betrayed/Jake Kelly - "It's a story that's never been told"

Done Kimberly - I've also made it the thread of the "moment" as opposed to the fortnight as I sometimes let it be longer, so just until whenever

I sort of wonder how minstream this will become, the story sounds interesting to me but since when did that count for anything.


I think I posted something on the news thread before about the movie being at Cannes or something but this has been updated on IMDB and Cannes isn't listed.

Canada August 2009 (Montréal Film Festival)

thanks Karen! they're really working hard to get this movie out there, so i thought we should do our part by starting a thread about it

james said in the interview that Will Tiao raised 6 million dollars on his own to get the movie made....that's pretty amazing!

That is amazing Kimberly. Can you try to add links for new threads to the intro/board guide thread. I tend to forget to update the guide

Thanks for opening this, Kimberly.

The story looks exrremely interesting, very much like the political thrillers, books I read. I hope this movie gets good exposure, it really sounds like a story that people should get to hear. Im very intrigued.

thanks to the tip from jonizzle@gmail.com i e-mailed Formosa Films and asked them for a higher resolution photo of the new movie poster since the only versions online were reallly small. They wrote back to me today!

Kimberly,


Thanks for emailing us. We looked over the thread and it looks great -- thank you for doing this! I've attached our latest poster for you. Thanks again!
How awesome is that??!!!

Here's the movie poster....now i can add it to the OP



EDIT

is it showing up for everyone? sometimes it shows for me and sometimes it doesn't try refreshing your page a few times if it doesn't come up. that worked for me.
