For decades, the 228 Incident remained a taboo subject in Taiwan. Victims and their families were forced to swallow their rage and sorrow. In 1995, the government set up the 228 Memorial Foundation to rectify the injustices done to the victims. But this part of Taiwan’s modern history still remains largely unknown by the younger generation, because of a lack of education. In this new video production, filmmakers Nicolas Datiche and Pierre-Emmanuel Delétrée walk us through the history of this formative event in Taiwan’s history.
