We will be showing the film Our Youth In Taiwan, directed by Taiwanese director Fu Yue (傅榆).
Stories of bidding farewell to one’s youth and growing up are commonplace. The dream shared by the protagonists in the film is to build a better country by rebelling against the establishment. However, their fight becomes part of history in the turbulent relations between Taiwan and China.
A Taiwanese student movement star who fights against China, a celebrity Chinese student who loves Taiwan, and a Taiwanese documentary filmmaker passionate about politics clash but the three find the possibility of collaborating with each other in the social movement. After the biggest social movement in Taiwan in the past 24 years had taken place, they came close to realizing their goals but gradually they were let down again. Is it still possible for them to continue fighting for the ideals they had been pursuing?
