The Substitute

From Teddy Award winning Taiwanese director Zero Chou comes The Substitute, the first of her six part Rainbow Cities series.


Lu has grown up in the shadows of her dead brother; brought up as his "substitute", she spends her days fan-girling over charismatic internet celebrity, Nicole. When Lu and Nicole come up against each other at a judo championship, where the prize is a chance to star in a film, Nicole's arrogance and Lu's shyness create sparks neither have experienced.


This sweet film is a fun take on modern romance as Lu grapples with falling in love with the girl on her screen.
