Trailer for Yang Yang, which screened at the 2009 Vancouver International Film Festival. Young Eurasian high schooler Yang Yang is played by Taiwan s most popular young indie movie muse Sandrine Pinna, whose half-Taiwanese, half-French looks are integrated into the film s heart. Yang Yang s best friend, her half sister Xiao-ru, is a rival both on the track and in their love lives. When Xiao-ru s boyfriend falls for Yang Yang, jealousies explode in an act of shocking betrayal, changing Yang Yang s life forever. A friendly manager Ming-ren--so friendly that he starts to raise questions in the viewer s mind--takes her under his wing, and her career as a model/actress takes off, thanks to her mixed ancestry and his tender care and training.
