Our Youth, in Taiwan: Film Screening

Dates: 15 Jun - 15 Jun

Show Time: 2.30pm

Tickets: €10

Taiwan Ireland Association present a special screening of Our Youth in Taiwan, a documentary film about youth, idealism, social movement and Taiwan, followed by a Q&A with director Fu Yue.

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 star of the Taiwanese student movement, a celebrity Chinese student who loves Taiwan, and a Taiwanese documentary filmmaker passionate about politics. Each of them shared dreams of rebellion and building a better country. In the wake of the biggest social movement in Taiwan in recent years they came close to realising 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?

Fu Yue studied in the Department of Radio and Television in one of the top Taiwanese universities, later receiving a Masters in Sound and Image Studies. She mainly explore young people’s ideals and attitudes towards Taiwan’s political and economic landscape. ‘Our Youth, In Taiwan’ is her third documentary film. Her films have received several awards at the youth film festival in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan and she has been nominated for Best Documentary and Best Editing at the Golden Horse Awards.
