Synopsis

In 2000, director Mickey CHEN won the TIDF Audience Award with his film, Boys for Beauty. At the time, the ‘Real Pangcah, Reel Amis’ Documentary Festival, organised by indigenous director Mayaw Biho, was hindered by the Taipei City Government at every turn. A group of Taiwanese directors decided to call out in solidarity at the TIDF award ceremony. This clip documents the development of the plan from plotting to action, and captures rare footage of director CHEN at the podium reading out their letter of protest. With this clip, we wish to commemorate the life and figure of director Mickey CHEN, who passed away in 2018.
