Synopsis:
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!

Genre: Documentary

近十年來,台灣社會運動頻繁,越來越多公民走上街頭發聲,其中尤以正值青春的學生為眾。輿論對於「社運」褒貶不一,但無論成敗與否,那都是因為在這片自由的土地上,青年才得以選擇用社運,將青春紀錄在台灣社會運動史上。

第55屆金馬獎最佳紀錄片《我們的青春,在台灣》,歷經八年的拍攝與剪輯,紀錄「太陽花學運」領袖陳為廷,與在台留學陸生蔡博藝在社運現場的身影;除了拍攝抗爭者捍衛理念的吶喊和衝撞,同時也捕捉了他們私下的掙扎及迷惘。

「很多人都以為這部片是在講政治,但它更多是在談論青春。」導演傅榆談及拍攝本片的初衷,是希望尋找兩岸青年相互理解、對話的可能性。

榮獲第55屆金馬獎最佳紀錄片,本片藉由紀錄台灣「太陽花學運」領袖陳為廷與在台留學陸生蔡博藝在社運現場的身影,探討在台灣的千禧世代如何捍衛理念,也試圖尋找兩岸青年相互理解、對話的可能性。

傅榆畢業於台灣台南藝術大學音像紀錄研究所,現從事獨立紀錄片工作,並嘗試紀錄性質的電視節目製作,主要探索與關注台灣年輕人對台灣政治與社會的價值觀與態度。作品「我在台灣,我正青春」短版曾獲台灣新北市紀錄片獎首獎,「藍綠對話實驗室」曾獲中國FIRST青年電影展最佳紀錄片。紀錄短片「完美墜地」獲2016年香港華語紀錄片節短片首獎。
