My Fancy High Heels

When: Mon., Oct. 24, 8 p.m. 2011

Taiwanese director Ho Chao-ti's documentary My Fancy High Heels tells the story of Taiwan's role in the presentation of a show of luxury high heels, tracing the items from production line to upscale boutique. The film is the latest addition to her Midpoint Island series of documentaries that explore Taiwan's role in global industry. Ho explains, "'Midpoint Island' refers to how Taiwan's overseas factories represent a middle point in the production chain of clothes and shoes, sandwiched between product design and marketing, both of which are usually the domain of large, wealthy nations." Ho also has investigated the production of T-shirts, bras, jeans and dresses, focusing on Taiwain's role as an intermediary and cherishing the humanity of the characters who tell her story. Tickets to the 8 p.m. screening are free. —Meg Stein
