Taiwan Documentary Film Night

Mar 29, 2016

Join us at the Garneau Cinema, March 30, for a showing of the documentary Sunflower Occupation 太陽不遠 which depicts the dramatic standoff that ensued when student protesters in Taiwan occupied their national parliament to protest the passage of a free trade pact with China. Characterized as a protest to save Taiwan's democracy, their demonstration offers a window into the politics of one East Asia's most dynamic societies.
