Directed by Nihon Documentary Union
Filmed by activist documentary makers from Tokyo, this recently rediscovered underground film takes us from Taiwanese migrant workers in American-occupied Okinawa to a small Atayal village in the mountains of east Taiwan. This showcase of the complex vestiges of the Empire of Japan points to fascinating continuities with labour and migration issues today.
It was screened at the Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival (2005)
