Center to Host Screening of Award-Winning Film
“Go, Grandriders,” a prize-winning documentary film, will screen at 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17 at the Winchester Theater, located inside the Winchester Cultural Center at 3130 S. McLeod Drive, just north of Desert Inn Road. The film, which was selected for San Francisco’s CAAMFest this year, follows a group of octogenarians as they circumnavigate Taiwan on motorcycles during a 13-day journey. Tickets to this event are free, thanks to the American Chinese Foundation, and can picked up at the center’s front desk.
The film was nominated for a documentary award at the 17th Busan International Film Festival and was screened at the Hong Kong Asian Film Festival in 2012. The film delivers the message, “aging should never stop one from daring to dream.”
