  • Description:

    In an age of globalization characterized by uneven development and flexible accumulation, documentary filmmakers all over the world have found significant issues to investigate and critique. Documentary filmmaking in Taiwan is no exception to the current phenomenon, having confronted issues ranging from industries and markets to the human and environmental costs of development. In this regard, female documentarists’ contribution deserves a special examination--how have they dealt with complex issues at the intersection of gender, class, regional and other politics in the global era?
