The film will be introduced by the Director General of TECO (Taipei Economic and Cultural Office) and followed by a Q&A session with Director Jonathan Yang.
Screening occurs after Museum hours. The Museum’s exhibits and galleries will be closed.
During the Cold War, 28 pilots of the Black Cat Squadron joined a secret mission which has a lower survival rate than Russian Roulette. Their life stories beg the unanswerable question: What makes a real hero?
Over the course of a fourteen-year mission, seven pilots lost their lives in training, and three on the mission. Another two were shot down and captured, never seeing home for more than two decades.
45 years after the last mission of the Black Cat team, the documentary speaks out the voice of this era again. It gives us a gentle reminder not to forget people who have guarded us.
Q&A with Director Jonathan Yang after the documentary screening.
Director Jonathan Yang started his career in film in 1991. He is the top director for commercial ads and music videos for Taiwan’s hottest singers. This is his first documentary, fulfilling a childhood dream of his. Fascinated by the story these veterans had to tell, he spent six long years collecting films, data, and interviewing people. Take the this chance to have a conversation with Director Yang!
