International PREMIERE

The Receptionist (Jie Xian Yuan)

Part of the Best of British Strand

Body

Unable to find a job, Tina (Teresa Daley), a Taiwanese recent graduate living in London, starts working in an illegal massage parlour as a receptionist. As she gradually comes to know the women in this most dysfunctional of artificial families, where sex lies at the core of everything, she sees how they struggle to find a way to make their lives work, with an undercurrent of violence and danger always lurking. Jenny Lu’s impressive UK/Taiwan co-production featured in EIFF’s inaugural Works in Progress strand last year. 

Supported by Taiwan Academy Scotland and the University of Edinburgh.
