JUMPING BOY: Cable Car Cinema
Saturday, February 18, 2012 at 3:00 PM (EST)
Having lost his left leg to bone cancer, Ka is left with only one leg to jump with. When he is discharged from the hospital, Dr. Chen gives him a present: a child's picture book entitled Rolypoly. The doctor tells him, "Jump five million times, and you'll see Rolypoly." Thus begins a story of a boy, an aging children’s book author wishing to correct a past misdeed (theft), and a Chinese village that embraces them both.
The film took three years to make due to the difficult process of combining live actions with animations. All the stories (the animation parts) in the movie were bed-time stories the director Chin Lin told to his son 15 years ago. The main actor playing the author (Tien Bien) is a famous stage actor in Taiwan. All the children are non-professional actors.
Ages 9 and up. Director Chin Lin / (Taiwan, 2011) / Chinese with English subtitles / 95 mins.
