Dear Japanese Audiences:
Thank you for taking an interest in WINDS OF SEPTEMBER. I'm very excited about the Japanese premiere in TIFF. I will be in Tokyo for both the showings and I look forward to meeting you all after the screening to listen to your reactions and answer any questions you all may have.
This is a tender story about my growing up in Taiwan with my friends. It is a story about friendship and the end of innocence. Locally, the film has touched the hearts of many who has seen it. I deeply hope our film will also touch the hearts of the Japanese audience. I believe that as human beings, we are not that different. Growing up is a universal language, and I want to share my experience with you.
Tom Shu-Yu Lin
Director of WINDS OF SEPTEMBER
