Three Fork Village

Liang-Feng CHEN 2006 Taiwan Documentary color 144min Mandarin, Atayal, Ta Beta
Opening with a tale of the beginning of Three Fork Village, an aboriginal community in the mountains of central Taiwan, the film follows Jian-Zhi LIN, a villager who spent years trying to escape his tribe by living in the city. During an ill-fated visit back home in September 1999, a catastrophic earthquake kills his mother and brother, and reduced Three Fork Village to rubbles.
At home but now without a home, Jian-Zhi stays to look after his father. He could never have imagined that in the chaos following the earthquake, a confused government would deem Three Fork unsuitable for rebuild and forced them to move. Jian-Zhi tries to come to terms with his village, as his village tries to come to terms with its future.
