STARRY STARRY NIGHT is the award-winning coming-of-age story of Xiao Mei, the only child in a family that is falling apart as her parents become increasingly disconnected. At school, Xiao Mei begins an unlikely friendship with a mysterious new boy in her class. Together, they set out for a backpacking journey through the mountains and lean on fantasy and imagination to overcome their worries.
Based on the Taiwanese illustrated children's book of the same name by Jimmy Liao, this North American premiere of STARRY STARRY NIGHT will be followed by a live Q&A with director Tom Shu-Yu Lin (林書宇). An autograph session and free catered reception will be held in the lobby afterwards.
