The screening date is a correction from the printed program.

Washington, D.C. Premiere Documenting Taiwan—called the beautiful island by Portuguese explorers who landed there in the 1500s—from an aerial perspective, this Taiwanese box office sensation offers a glimpse of its natural beauty and the deleterious effect of human activities and urbanization on its environment. The beauty of Taiwan’s untouched areas contrasts with the ugliness of mountainsides eroded by development and large-scale farming, and of coastlines polluted by industry. In Mandarin with English subtitles. Directed

by Chi Po-Lin.

Introduced by Michael Wilpers, Public Programs Coordinator, Freer and Sackler Galleries.
