Nina Wu is working on her breakthrough as an actress in Taipei, while making ends meet as a webcam model. Suddenly she is given the chance to participate in a bigger project, albeit one with rather liberal sexual content. The director purposefully torments Nina so that she becomes more believable in her role – and her psyche begins to crumble when traumatic memories begin to resurface. Director Midi Z’s cold, confrontational psycho thriller follows the trail of the classic anime Perfect Blue, but is also an affair of the heart for co-author and protagonist Wu Ke-Xi, who based the script to a large extent on her own experiences, a piece of contemporary history: #MeToo – the Movie.

Midi Z
(*1982 in Myanmar) is based in Taiwan and has directed several feature films including Return to Burma (2011), Ice Poison (2014) and The Road to Mandalay (2016). In addition, Midi has made three documentaries: Jade Miners (2015), City of Jade (2016) and 14 Apples (2018). Nina Wu world premiered at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.
