Triple 8 Palace






"A Chinese girl owes a staggering smuggling debt to the Snakeheads — and the sweatshop pays three cents a piece. But there’s another way. The gangs. Bodywork. And Full Service at two hundred an hour."

Winner of NYU’s Adam Balsano Award for Social Significance,
Triple 8 Palace is an Official Selection of The Cannes Film Festival and of the famed Beijing Academy Film Festival.

In
Triple 8 Palace, directed by Alexander Ku, Qian Yi stars as a girl struggling to survive in a vibrant, destructive Chinese-American sub-culture fragmented by ambition and desire.
