This time he will discuss his experiences of documenting Taiwan's student movements and discuss clips from both The Right Thing and from his forthcoming film The Mob (街頭). His much anticipated sequel to The Right Thing examines what happened to Wild Strawberry protestors in the next six years, culminating in the Sunflower Movement.
