Let’s watch the movie, Beyond Beauty: Taiwan from Above, with Taiwanese American Professionals – Washington, DC (TAP-DC) on March 22nd at the Freer Galler Meyer Auditorium!
Beyond Beauty: Taiwan from Above is part of the series Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital, which runs March 18-30 at venues throughout the DC area.
“A gorgeous bird’s-eye view of Taiwan’s stunning natural landscape, this film set box office records in Taiwan and won the Best Documentary Award at the 2013 Golden Horse Awards. It proves why the Portuguese explorers who landed on the island in the 1500s immediately named it Ilha Formosa (beautiful island). But its wonderful aerial photography also carries a message about how that landscape is being mistreated. The beauty of Taiwan’s untouched areas is contrasted with images of mountainsides eroded by development and large-scale farming and coastlines polluted by industry.”
Space is limited so please arrive on time!
