Turtle Island: Nostalgic Voices


When fishing at sea, he always glimpses Guishan Island. Childhood memories and the villagers' distinct qualities were buried there during the village’s relocation. 'Now, we hide our homesickness in dreams'. Witnessing the island's tourism deeply affects displaced islanders.  

'I originally thought my relationship with Guishan Island was close... but it was wishful thinking, my own imagination. Should I stand in their shoes or mine? What exactly defines my standpoint? I'm quite uncertain. Is this film meant to speak for them or to make everyone want to visit the place? Eventually, I realised everything was filmed for my nostalgia.' - LEE Yung-chuan
