Mermaid Whispering was released in 2017 and won award from Taiwan and overseas.
Through the perspective of the three main characters of sea, man and fish, this film leads the audience to understand the marine ecological catastrophe that most people have not seen or paid attention to, and the ocean is facing.
It is a most serious issue; through the plot, it also conveys the attachment and contradictions of the Dawu people to the ocean, and redefines the value of the ocean that belongs to them in the depths of their hearts.
The documentary FATHER was released in 2018 Taiwan and earned recognition all over the world.
A decade in the making, FATHER focused on the life of Taiwanese puppet master Chen Hsi-huang(1931~ ) and his strained relationship with his father Li Tian-Lu, legendary puppeteer-actor. This documentary not only shows how Chen wrests his identity from his father but also reflects the history of Puppet Theater in Taiwan. Chen finds no one to pass on his great skills, as glove puppetry becomes an obsolete antique art.
The 90-year old Master Puppeteer Chen His-huang is a living National treasure. In 2009, the Council for Cultural Affairs (now the Ministry of Culture) designated Chen an “important preserver of traditional puppetry.” In 2011, he was named a “preserver of traditional techniques for making glove-puppet costumes, hats and props.”
The Taiwanese Canadian Cultural Society respectfully acknowledges that 2022 Taiwanese Canadian Cultural Festival takes place on the traditional, unceded lands of the Coast Salish people, including the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-waututh Nations.
