Jointly directed by nine members of the Taipei Documentary Filmmakers Union, Sunflower Occupation is a 10-part omnibus that recounts the genesis, process, and aftermath of the student-led Sunflower Movement of 2014. The film captures the challenges of democratic protest and citizen action during a powerful period of civil disobedience that tested the country’s democratic foundations. An intense portrayal of a revolution in action, Sunflower Occupation combines dynamism and contemplation as it situates the movement in Taiwan’s democratic transition and history of opposition to authoritarian rule. In Mandarin with English subtitles. (HD Presentation)
