Taiwan Equals Love

2020 1hr30m
A 4 year in the making documentary featuring real footage of the demonstrations that led to Taiwan becoming the first country in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage. In 2016, the parties of the Taiwan Legislative Yuan submitted drafts on the marriage equality act but were confronted with anti-LGBTQ groups. Meanwhile, three same-sex couples are also facing their own family issues. Tien-Ming and Hsiang have been in love for more than 30 years, but their love is being tested with old-age and illness. Jovi and Mindy spend most of their time protesting for marriage equality, fighting for the rights of Jovi's daughter. A-Gu flew from Macau to live with Shinchi but is now struggling with finances and the pressure to come out to their parents... Tien-Ming and Ho Hsian have been together for 37 years, but now their health is starting to fail them. Two years ago, Ho-Hsian was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and Tien-Ming also had a minor stroke. They decided to take some action to protect their relationship. Jovi had always wanted a perfect family. She and her former partner traveled abroad to have a child through artificial insemination, but they eventually broke up and Jovi got together with Mindy. Now, Jovi, Mindy, and their child Miao-Miao are adapting to a new life. Mindy hopes to receive the love and trust of Jovi’s child and become her legal parent. A-Gu decided to end his long-distance relationship and move from Macau to Taiwan to live with Hsinchi. A-Gu’s foreign status in Taiwan made it difficult for him to find a job and the economical difficulties are threatening his stay in the island. Their personal struggles, their ups and downs, are all a reflection of the country’s issues in its path towards marriage equality.

"As we continue to entertain the world with high quality content, Vuulr’s innovative content marketplace brings valuable opportunities for increased commercialization and collaboration helping us to continue to build a creative global brand."

Hairun Pictures

"There are a lot of quality Chinese films that never have a chance to be introduced to overseas audiences due to lack of good distribution channels. Even though certain large commercial films that are screened overseas may receive attention from the Chinese community, they may not necessarily be accepted by foreign audiences. It would be great news for Chinese film industry if every film could be presented to global buyers with varied palates on a mature distribution platform. I sincerely hope that Vuulr will achieve more in time, and truly becomes "the bridge" between buyers and sellers."
