SKU: 03769-M203

Nina Wu is characterised by manic, experessionistic visuals and an intensely dramatic storyline – a noticeable deviation from the usual realism of Burmese-Taiwanese director Midi Z. In using the harrowing experiences of its female protagonist to condemn the protocols and power plays of showbiz, the film also establishes itself as a compelling metatext in the wake of #MeToo, writes Gabrielle O'Brien.
