The film explores a well-known cultural studies program sponsored by the Republic of China (Taiwan) government. Due to its reputation for college-aged overseas Chinese & Taiwanese Americans to find romance, the program is known colloquially as the Love Boat. The Love Boat has a rich history, and many famous alumni have passed through the program over the years, including Congresswoman Judy Chu, BuzzFeed's Justin Tan, and singer Wang Lee Hom. Although it started out in 1967 as a small cultural program, over the years the Love Boat eventually became harder to gain entry into than many colleges!
A novel entitled Loveboat, Taipei, will be released the same week, and its author Abigail Wen (Harvard ‘99) will join us for a Q&A and a book signing immediately following the screening. Copies of the book will be available at the event or can be pre-ordered through your local independent bookseller (Indiebound), or Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Target.
