Special Events, TEEN

Doc, Italian Premiere, Second Film

(USA, Taiwan / 2023 / 85’)


The film portrays Tsai Ing-wen, Taiwan's president from 2016 to 2024 and the first woman to serve in this role. Vanessa Hope offers an unprecedentedly intimate and urgent account of the responsibilities of the head of a precariously balanced state caught between the opposing forces of the United States and China. At the same time, she traces the country's difficult history, the recent democratization process and traces the fears and horizons of a people.
An unprecedented portrait of a head of state, a document on a country caught between conflicting pushes, a manifesto for the self-determination of a people between the difficult maintenance of democracy and the shadow of an uncertain future.
