In 1933, Le Moulin, an avant-garde literary magazine, was founded by young poets in Taiwan. Living under Japanese rule, these writers were introduced to European modernism by intellectuals from the metropole. The words of Baudelaire and Rimbaud transformed these artists, and compelled them to compose poems of and for the island. After World War II, the poets were oppressed by the KMT government, and their stories forgotten. This film is an invitation to the world experienced and imagined by them. In Japanese with English subtitles.
