Rolling on the Stage, Rolling for Life

Synopsis

Twenty years ago, CHEN Wan-tsong set up ‘Zhuang San Xin Liang-le Opera Troupe’ to pass on the soon-to-disappear art of ‘local Taiwanese opera’. After his decease, his son CHEN Mao-yi took over and continued his father’s mission. This film documents the troupe’s transformation from an amateur community troupe to a government-subsidised one and the difficulties it faced along the way.
