Your Name Engraved Herein (刻在你心裡的名字)
(Taiwan, 2020, 1 hour 58 minutes) directed by Kuang-Hui Liu
Mandarin with English subtitles
Synopsis: Your Name Engraved Herein is about two high school boys in an all-male boarding school exploring their friendship and genuine love for each other against the backdrop of the 1980s when Taiwan recently lifted its strict martial law, amid a transition from conservative society to become the most LGBTQ-friendly country in Asia. When the boarding school begins admitting females, their relationship faces an ultimate test with the emergence of a school girl.
Your Name Engraved Herein is Taiwan’s all-time highest-grossing LGBTQ film, receiving 5 Golden Horse Award nominations in 2020. The film is produced by Arthur Chu, directed by Kuang-Hui “Patrick” Liu, starring Jing-Hua Tseng and Edward Chen.
