Our second screening of the TUSO Film Fest is The Silent Teacher (那個靜默的陽光午後) 2017.

Directed by Maso Chen
Length: 73 min
Listen to the inner voice of the one you love while she is traveling through the boundary between life and death. In Taiwan, medical students call the dead body used for medical dissection "the silent teacher." Due to the yearning hopeful connection of the dead in Asia, body donation is hardly acceptable. Mrs. Lin, whose body will be dissected the next year, her family and the students struggle through the travel in a different way, what influence the silent teacher will bring to? Even though her soul already leaves, what is the life? death?
This is a story about love and understanding.
