Love Boat Taiwan

Directed by Valerie Soe

Love Boat: Taiwan, a feature-length documentary, looks into of one of the longest running summer programs in the world. Love Boat: Taiwan revisits the program’s participants and explores the history and popularity of this well-known program, which is sponsored by the Taiwanese government and which takes place every summer in Taiwan. Despite its high-minded aspirations that include classes in Mandarin-language study, martial arts, and brush painting, the program’s popularity stems from another source: its reputation as an excellent place for college-aged Taiwanese Americans and other overseas Chinese to hook up and find romance. Because of this, although it does not take on a ship and is landlocked at a conference center in Taipei, the program is more commonly known by its romantic nickname – the Taiwan Love Boat.

Co-presented by: Taiwanese American Professionals – Seattle
