After graduating from the Department of Film and Television at NYU, Jake Pollock, a fan of Taiwanese cinema, decided to relocate to Taiwan. His unique handheld style saw him receive the Special Jury Prize at Taipei for Respire (2005). His most recent two films, The Message (2009) and Monga (2010), have achieved huge box-office success.
