MandarinVision launches its own international sales operations. This week, the Taiwan-based production firm is unleashing 2 comedy films called “Ace of Sales” and “Godspeed” at the FILMART.
Ace of Sales is a light-hearted comedy about a young female home shopping host who becomes the top sales person while she got held hostage during a live show. It is directed by Cho Li who had an entry called “Rice Bomber” at the 2015 Berlinale for the Panorama section.
Godspeed on the other hand is a dark movie which centers on a cab driver and a punk. Together, they will undertake an involuntary journey that will change their lives forever. The film is directed by Chung Mong-hong (“Parking” and “the Fourth Portrait”) and stars veteran Hong Kong comedian Michael Hui.
Desmond Yang, who is the former Atom Cinema sales head, has been appointed to oversee international sales, and producer Yeh Jufeng leads the company’s film development and production part. Currently, the two comedy films are in post-production.
