Screening Schedule:

:I Love (080)

Taiwan, 1999, 58 min

All Taiwanese men must fulfill obligatory military service. The filmmaker followed his former young graduating student who was about to become a soldier. (080) in the title refers to the free-dial code in Taiwan - for the soldiers, a cheap way to chat with telephone operators, and also the hotline for complainants and informers. Gradually, he couldn’t bear the boredom and oppression of military life and was going crazy. His mind and dreams seem to be crushed by the corruption, the verbal violence, and the hypocrisy that festers in the military hierarchy.
