Taiwan’s Vanishing Paradise: A story told by a foreign student
|Issue Date: ||2015-08-03 13:39:56 (UTC+8)|
|Abstract: ||Taiwan’s Vanishing Paradise is a short documentary film about the ecological, social and financial situation in the Hengchun Peninsula, South Taiwan. It revolves around the fact, that the area is a natural paradise, yet the local communities are relatively poor hence, the ideal location, climate and natural habitat. The coastal zone is populated by the world’s most unique hard corals, which could only be found in this area. The film delivers its message through the camera lense of a foreigner, giving it a little twist. It’s purpose is to raise awareness about the possibilities of financial and infrastructural development. Corals are valuable and the community doesn't take advantage. How could this scenario emerge without anyone noticing or doing anything about it? It well may have been noticed, but a viable solution has not yet been implemented until this day. This film also provides a solid plan for changing the situation, to give this beautiful area a chance to be an ideal paradise for both men and nature.|
