Thursday Late: Film Screening

Beauty Under Fire: The Xiuguluan River (2010, CHEN Ching-Chong)

60 minutes screening, followed by discussion

The Xiuguluan River is one of four major rivers in Taiwan. It begins in the Central Mountain ranges and flows in to the Pacific Ocean through a network of mountains, plains, wetlands and river deltas. Generations of human settlement have relied on it, but ultimately through modernisation and industrialisation, humans have stained and endangered the river. By showing this startling spectacle the documentary calls for us to care more for our rivers.
