One of the most acclaimed Taiwanese films of 2017, The Great Buddha+ is a darkly humorous feature that won five Golden Horse Awards and screened at many international festivals.

The story follows a man named Pickle who works as a security guard in a factory that makes Buddha statues. Pickle passes time with his friend and junk collector, Belly Button, and together they stumble on a startling discovery while reviewing dash-cam footage from the boss’s Mercedes. The frenetic events that follow are cleverly depicted in contrasting black-and-white and color scenes, reflecting lives of the haves and the have-nots in a small rural town.
