The Urban Nomad Film Festival will put on an extra screening of The Taiwan Oyster (台灣牡蠣) on Sunday at 12:20pm at Huashan 1914 Creative Park (華山1914). The feature-length indie film, directed by Mark Jarrett, who lived in Taichung from 1999 to 2001, is a coming-of-age tale that contemplates death. Set in Taiwan soon after the 921 Earthquake, it follows the alcohol-fueled adventures of Simon (Billy Harvey) and Darin (Jeff Palmiotti), two American expats who steal the corpse of their “countryman” Jeb (Will Mounger) after he dies because of a silly accident. They strike out from Taipei, traveling south to find him a final resting place. Along the way they meet Nikita (Leonora Lim), a Taiwanese woman who serves as a kind of foil to their expat excesses.
