5:35pm: Q&A with Director Yue FU 傅榆導演 (45 min)
Location: SIFF Cinema Uptown
Our Youth in Taiwan brings together an interesting trio—a Taiwanese star leader in Sunflower Movement, a celebrity Chinese student [participant] in the movement and a Taiwanese documentary filmmaker. Each of them somehow shares their youthful ambition and idealism through the biggest social movement in Taiwan in recent years. The documentary illustrates “a subtly emotive memoir and ode to these days of being naive and fearless.”
Furthermore, the film is about a generation of young people and their struggles to recognize their changing attitudes and hopes toward realizing social change when facing reality.
Q&A with Director Yue Fu after the documentary screening.
Director Yue Fu graduated from Institute of Sound and Image Studies of Tainan National University of Arts in 2008. “People tend to think this film is about politics, but it is actually about youth.” Her documentaries mainly explore the younger generations’ ideas and attitudes towards Taiwan’s political and economic landscape. Her films have received several awards, most recently Best Documentary at Golden Horse Awards and Taipei Film Awards for “Our Youth In Taiwan”. Take this chance to have a conversation with Director Fu!
