Black investigates water pollution in Taiwan and its consequences for both the environment and poor communities who rely on contaminated crops. It asks, why have factories been allowed to sprout amidst green fields? How can a country address the issue of food security when it turns a blind eye to the poisoning of its croplands? Renowned documentary film director Ke Chin-yuan poses sharp questions about how pollution affects the livelihoods of the poor in a country increasingly concerned with environmental degradation and food safety. (HD Presentation)

The post-film discussion will include: Professor Tze-lan Sang, Michigan State University; Professor Alex Lichtenstein, Indiana University; Professor Susan Hwang, Indiana University; and Professor Joshua Malitsky, Indiana University and Center for Documentary Research and Practice. In Mandarin with English subtitles.
