Transformations of the Global Social Nucleus: Thoughts on Family as reflected in Taiwanese cinema

November 12, 2022, 08:30 – 17:30, Fulbright University Vietnam, 105 Ton Dat Tien Street, Tan Phu Ward, District 7, Ho Chi Minh City

Fulbright University Vietnam is delighted to invite you to a roundtable on Taiwanese Cinema, hosted by the Vietnam Studies Center in collaboration with Autumn Meeting.

This conference will discuss issues of the family as the nucleus of contemporary society from internal viewpoints (from Taiwan) and external standpoints (from Vietnam and the United States). The presence and awards won in international film contests and festivals of Taiwanese cinema continue reconfirming its position on the global silver screen, unceasingly raising humane issues in the context of global interconnection. On one hand, familial stories reflected in Taiwanese films carve out multidimensional images of a specific society. On the other, moving beyond local characteristics, the families shown in the films trigger the audience’s thoughts of globally humane questions that appear universal to any communities or societies in our contemporary world.

This one-day event consists of 13 papers from film directors, film critics and scholars specialized in literature and film from Taiwan, the United States, and Vietnam. Hosted by Autumn Meeting and Fulbright University Vietnam and supported by the Taipei Economic and Culture Office in Vietnam, the conference will be open to public.

⏰ Time: 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM on Saturday, November 12, 2022 (Vietnam time, GMT +7)
🎥 Location: Fulbright University Vietnam, 105 Ton Dat Tien Street, Tan Phu Ward, District 7, Ho Chi Minh City
