Snobs was shot in an old tobacco factory that has been transformed into a „creative park“. It houses facilities like the Taiwan Design Museum, a pond, various restaurants and cafés. Ever since the park opened in 2011, large, luxurious multi-purpose buildings like Eslite Spectrum Songyan have popped up and prices have skyrocketed. The large building in the background will turn into another high-end housing complex and will further gentrify the area.
While choosing to take a somewhat strong stance against the area’s gentrification, the performers said they still love coming there to spend an afternoon.
Snobs is the result of an open call of the Taipei Museum of Contemporary Art which yielded a few hundred entries within a few hours.
