Sunflower Occupation Documentary Tours North America

sunfloweroccupationdoc

A year after the historic occupation of Taiwan’s Legislative Yuan, a 9-part collaboration documentary has been made featuring the stories and timeline of events during this student-led “Sunflower Movement.”

The Sunflower Student Movement, driven by a coalition of students and civic groups, protested the passing of the Cross-Strait Service Trade Agreement by the Kuomintang party in the legislature without a clause-by-clause review. The Sunflower image was associated with this massive student protest after a florist contributed 1000 sunflowers to the students camped outside the Legislative Yuan, and it became a symbol of hope for the movement. The occupation lasted 24 days between March 18 and April 10, 2014. During that period, students also attempted to occupy the Executive Yuan.

The documentary takes you inside the movement through the stories and perspectives of student organizers and leaders.
