September 21, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The 3rd Annual Hello Taiwan Bubble Tea Festival is returning to the streets of New York! In 2017, the New York Times published an article calling tapioca pearls “blobs” and referred to bubble tea as “exotic.” Readers sounded off, and the Times revised their piece.

The spotlight focuses on Taiwan-US collaborative “Project Razor” and one secretive yet significant squadron – Black Cats, former 35th squardron airforce. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Cat_Squadron 影片顯見的看點,絕對能滿足軍事武器迷和歷史迷,如其揭露的絕密的任務、頂尖的飛行員、U-2高空偵察機這台號稱世界上最難駕馭的機種之一⋯⋯。另一個看點則是它所包含的傷口——飛行員可能在訓練時死亡;熬過訓練之後,可能因對空導彈殉職或被俘虜——電影的簡筆敷蓋處理,進而產生令人不安的空缺。更有甚者,作為一部圍繞國共爭鬥為起始的紀錄片,其本身連動的議題,不管是顯而易見或隱而未宣的部份,都對台灣觀眾具可看性。 Fulfilled with highlights in the film, ensuring satisfying viewing for military weapon fans and history enthusiastic, it entails declassified secretive missions, top aviators, and U-2 spy plane, one of the most…
