Indigenous Films in Taiwan Cultural Toolkit

Dear List Members,

One of the questions I've received a lot whenever I speak about Indigenous Taiwanese film is "where can I get these films?" Unfortunately distribution has not been great for many of these films, but I'm happy to discover that a number of great fiction and non-fiction films by and about Indigenous Taiwanese people are now available for nonprofit and academic use via Taiwan's Ministry of Culture. Please take a look at the webpage from the Taiwan Cinema Toolkit:

There is also a PDF of the bilingual (Chinese and English) catalog essay available for download here. The essay, "A Hundred Years of Screen Memories: Reviewing Indigenous Cinema in Taiwan" (pp.34-37) was written by Skaya Siku, a member of the Seejiq Truku Nation, from Nantou County with a Ph. D. in visual anthropology. She is a cinematographic researcher and activist specializing in Taiwanese indigenous films.

I have nothing to do with this project, other than wanting to make sure more people know about this great resource!

Cheers,

Kerim
