TECRO to sponsor free screenings of “Go Grandriders” on Aug. 26 and 27

The Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States is sponsoring two free screenings of "Go Grandriders," the highest-grossing documentary in Taiwanese history. The screenings will be shown at the Avalon Theatre in Washington, DC, on Monday, August 26, at 10:30 a.m. and at the Angelika Film Center and Café in Falls Church, Virginia on Tuesday, August 27, at 7:00 p.m. Following the showing of the film, grandrider Chang Hon-dao and his wife (and fellow grandrider) Chang Chen Ying-mei will lead a discussion about their experiences and answer questions.

“Go Grandriders” is the inspiring story of 17 Taiwanese senior citizens fulfilling a lifelong dream to travel around Taiwan on motorcycles. The group of octogenarians average 81-years-old, yet they courageously embark on the 13 day, 730 mile motorcycle ride around Taiwan to reminisce and rekindle their love for the land where they have lived.
