Title 62 Years and 6500 Miles Between
Published [San Francisco, California, USA] : Kanopy Streaming, 2015


Description 1 online resource (streaming video file)
Summary 62 Years and 6,500 Miles Between reworks the documentary form with its own set of expectations, while investigating historical, social and political phenomena via the personal. This film specifically examines how a postcolonial people negotiate the memory and translation essential to the reconstruction and ultimately reclamation of a personal and national history. Translation and memory are the means by which we construct the past, yet both of these are delicate. For example, while emphasizing testimonials in light of an official history, I use images of contemporary Taiwan, instead of archival footage -; reflecting how a postcolonial people can sometimes only reimagine their past. Finally, in the telling of this history perhaps the film will spark dialogue about the nonfiction canon that is deeply driven by our desire to represent history - revisted or as a moment in time; a memory - however vivid or fleeting; and truth - whether perceived or felt
