A touching documentary about the protection of Formosan Black Bears in Taiwan, by Lee Hsiang-Hsiu 2016, Taiwan.
Dafen, the heart of Yushan National Park, is a place abundant in wildlife and indigenous culture. With the assistance of an indigenous hunter, a female ecologist started her journey searching for Formosan Black Bears in 1998. In the midst of this wilderness, they gradually developed a deep and sincere companionship. Together with copious research, the secret of the Taiwan Black Bear is thus revealed.
The aim of the movie screening is to create greater awareness on the protection of wildlife and a deeper understanding of the culture of the indigenous people in Taiwan.
We often meet the indigenous people, who work as guides, porters, cook or hut crew, and see warning signs of the black bears while mountain climbing in Taiwan. This touching documentary will help us appreciate and respect the mountains more, that mountains are often inextricably intertwine with tradition culture/beliefs and wildlife.
