三島 3 Islands
Lin Hsin-I / 2015 / Taiwan / 39min / Mandarin, Japanese, Korean / Chinese and English subtitles
Taiwan, Japan and Korea all have islands with violent histories. The 228 incident in Taiwan, the mass suicide of the Battle of Okinawa, and the 4.3 Incident on Jeju Island (also known as “Jeju Uprising”) are the critical political events of the 1940s that have shaped these islands’ histories up to the present day. In this experimental documentary, artist Kao Jun-Honn, via the publishing of “Novel”, translates his observations, research, and artistic practices into a semi-fictional narrative, using documentary photos and personal observations to create new interpretations of the parallel histories of these three islands in East Asia.
