Documentary: Gongliao Ni Hao Ma? 貢寮你好嗎? Directed by Tsui Shu-hsin 崔愫欣 2004 (89 minutes)
Gongliao (貢寮), a fishing village located in the northeast Taiwan, was chosen by the government in the early 1980s to be the location for the Fourth Nuclear Power Plant (also known as Longmen Nuclear Power Plant). As the decision was not welcomed by Gongliao’s local residents, an anti-nuclear social movement has emerged to protest it—one which lasted for more than two decades. From 1998 to 2002, Shu-hsin Tsui (崔愫欣) video-taped local anti-nuclear events there while she was a masters-degree student working on participatory observation in Gongliao, including residents’ meetings and organised protests. She later edited the clips into the documentary Gongliao, How Are You?
A talk on the documentary by Prof Christopher Lupke is to follow shortly after the screening.
