Ho Chao-ti makes films centered on marginalized communities and non-mainstream issues, such as hybrid contemporary culture, and the hidden, more private costs of globalization.

She represents the new wave in Taiwanese cinema. Her films include Wandering Island (2009), The Gangster’s God (2006) and El Salvador Journal (2008), that won the Documentary - Special Award in Taipei Film Festival. 

Her lecture will follow screenings of two of her films: Sock 'n' Roll on March 12 and My Fancy High Heels on March 13, and the Symposium, Asian Cinemas in a Global Context. 

Ho Chao-ti's presentation is the Inaugural Jacobson-Cocco Distinguished Lecture, a series endowed by Oberlin Shansi in honor of former Executive Director Carl Jacobson and Associate Director Deborah Cocco. Learn more about the events of the weekend of March 14.
