Film Screening: Wansei Back Home
October 18, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
After Japan was defeated in World War II, nearly 350,000 Japanese civilians living in Taiwan were repatriated. Among those numbers, more than half consisted of wansei, or Taiwan-born Japanese subjects.
Directed by Huang Ming-cheng, this documentary draws on 12 years of research, focusing on the experiences of 8 wansei. Interviews with these subjects reveal stories about the concept of homeland, friendship, family.
Japanese, Hoklo, and Mandarin with Chinese and English subtitles.
