“The film is a really impressive draw for Taiwan tourism making the colors, sights, people, and every detail pop.” Laurel Marcus, DFR:Daily Fashion Report
The film hit a cord with the fashion press and the film industry alike. It has been submitted for the Oscars and many festivals are clamoring for submissions. The timing of the film could not be better; the film’s landscapes coincide with the new movie by, auteur, Martin Scorsese who was filming his new film “Silence” in Taiwan on the recommendation of Ang Lee (Taiwanese film maker), at the same time that “Journey to Taiwan”, was filming.
It also coincides with the wave of fashion designer documentary’s that seem to be in vogue now, such as: the new Dior Documentary: “Dior and I”.
