THE TAIWAN OYSTER (2012, U.S./Taiwan, 107 min.)
After the tragic death of a newly arrived Ex-pat, ESL kindergarten teachers Simon and Darin, steal the corpse in order to perform the final rites for the fallen stranger. Their quest for the perfect burial spot becomes a quixotic odyssey along Taiwan's picturesque East Coast Highway, where they encounter welcoming families, violent gangsters, personal demons, and Nikita, their traveling companion. The duty, transport, and dementia fueled by frequent substance abuse, ignites an internalization in all three characters as they define their personal feelings concerning mortality, purpose, burial rites and the concept of legacy. --SXSW Program Guide

When & Where
Ciné enriches the quality of life in Athens GA by presenting film and arts that inspire, educate and build community.
We treasure the experience of screening films in a unique community setting.
The restored historic venue—an abandoned tire recapping plant now transformed into a community hub that houses cinemas, a bar, and an event space—is the only independently operated, mission driven, non-profit, community-based art house movie theatre in the region.
Ciné plays a key role in the cultural landscape of downtown Athens, providing the unique opportunity to share the vitality of a community movie-going experience in a state-of-the-art setting, without the commercial distractions of the multiplex.
As a development anchor on West Hancock Avenue, Ciné has contributed to the economic growth of downtown Athens. Ciné brings people downtown, preventing the multiplex from leading the vital flow of patrons away from Athens.
