Australian Centre on China in the World, ANU

1-3 December 2017

Venue: The Auditorium, CIW Building #188, Fellows Lane

Indigenous cultures form the foundation of contemporary Taiwan. Yet, representation of indigenous people in Taiwan cinema has often been controversial. These films include stereotypical portrayals of Taiwan’s aboriginal peoples in the 1960s to popular contemporary films by indigenous directors. This diverse program features documentaries and feature films that engage with cultural, social, ecological and political issues pertinent to Taiwan’s past and present. All screenings are FREE and open to the public, but bookings are essential. All films have English subtitles.
