Hang in There, Kids!

Lokah Laqi

LAHA MEBOW
Taiwan, 2016
90 minutes, Color
Official website

Hang in There, Kid is a moving narrative about a trio of young Taiwanese aboriginal boys, Watan, Chen Hao, and Lin Shan, as they navigate their daily activities: hunting, selling peaches, chatting up tourists, and going to class and after-school programs (or sometimes ditching them), all while dealing with rough household troubles. Miss Lawa (Albee Huang), their teacher, runs an afterschool class for the kids in the tribe. She has the most beautiful voice but no longer sings—until one day Watan discovers an old demo tape Miss Lawa recorded years ago. With charming performances, stunning scenery, a bouncy score, and poignant songs, it's no wonder this feature has already captured the hearts of many. This spirited tale about youth and overcoming difficult circumstances will touch its audience long after the final fadeout.—Various sources

In Chinese with English subtitles

Co-presented with The Taiwan Ministry of Culture and Tecro
