Taiwan Documentary: Into the Time Capsule
The long history of Taiwanese people cannot be looked upon at a glimpse, but the snippets of life captured in the documentary films brought with this program provide a window inviting the audiences to stop and look into. Layers of context in the film found in small details. Each entwine and untwine tales in the implicit and explicit.
Like a time capsule, moments of the past are bottled for the future generation to find. Time and the other reality present in the medium are not without distance, but the second one requires to look is the exact second needed to shorten the distance.
