A Fight to the Death

Synopsis

A Fight to the Death traces the decades-long battle fought by the former residents of Baoshan Township in Hsinchu County, Taiwan. 36 years ago, due to the government's expropriation of lands to build the Baoshan Reservoir serving the Hsinchu Science Park, the villagers were forced to leave their homes. Paranoia and anxiety set the tone of this drawn-out battle against institutions, and the truth remains clouded.
