Director Shuhei Fujita's debute QUIET SUMMER tells a story of a young man raised in Japan, who comes to Taiwan to bury the ashes of his mother and finds his Taiwanese background. His travel quietly unfolds the happiness and sadness of a middle-aged Filipino worker and an old Chinese teacher living alone in a poor and single veteran community. QUIET SUMMER is a narrative film but strongly reflects the personal experiences and backgrounds of the director and actors in the society of Taiwan. Quiet summer has been screened at Philadelphia Film Festival(U.S.A), Pusan International Film Festival(Korea), FAJR International Film Festival(Iran) and Cinema Jove International Film Festival(Spain).
