Provide us a chance to have a deeper understand of protest movements and the way democracy works. #TFFIB
12 October 2019 | by haoyangjasonxieSee all my reviews

Actually, due to the director's personal political position and farce that happened on Golden Horse, I had prejudged that both the film and the award it won were all DPP's political propaganda tools, however as I finished watching it, I found that the film contained a lot of content including political facts under the current situation in the mainland, Taiwan and Hong Kong, and not just the Sunflower Movement. On the contrary of my anticipation, because directors choose to focus on specific characters rather than record the movement in general, the film can let the public including the insiders and bystanders to have a broader and more accurate view of the essence of the Sunflower Movement and political stars it spawned, and even a deeper understand of politics if we look at the current situation of the characters in the film. The film fully deserves the Golden Horse Award for Best Documentary.
