Event Wrap: EASC Taiwanese Documentary Series

The second installment of this three-part series attracted over 100 people from USC and the wider community throughout the two days of the event on the USC campus and at the USC Pacific Asia Museum. The three films screened covered topics such as water and air pollution in Taiwan and the plight of the whale shark. The screenings were followed by an engaging Q&A moderated by professors Stanley Rosen and Daniel Lynch and questions from the audience for renowned filmmaker Director Ke Chin-yuan. For details and to view the Q&A, please visit the event page.
