Screening of Formosa Betrayed, a Political Thriller about Taiwan
In spite of a late announcement, there was a packed house for the screening of 'Formosa Betrayed',a strong and engrossing political
thriller set in Taiwan which told us much about political conflict in a country relatively unfamiliar to a western audience. A highlight
of the evening was the presence of the Taiwanese-American actor-producer of the film, Will Tiao, who held a no-holds-barred Q & A at the
end of the screening, where he answered many questions about the Taiwanese-Chinese, Taiwanese-US, and Chinese-US relationships: a rewarding
evening of good cinema and great dialogue.
