Ethnographic Film Festival

Linda Arrigo passed this around about the upcoming Ethnographic Film Festival in at the Academia Sinica. It runs from Fri Oct 2 to Tues Oct 6.


Dear Friends,

This year the annual ethnographic film festival organized by Hu Taili at the Academia Sinica got announced rather late, and she asked me to help put out the word.

Most of the films are international; some are about/by Taiwan indigenous. The general theme this year is shamans and medical anthropology, including experiences with modern medicine and hospitals. Also death rituals, etc.

The website is (English Film list and other links)

with both Chinese and English sections.

The location is downtown in Shimending, and each session is NT$130 (NT$100 for advance purchase), or you can buy a pass for the whole thing. They say the theatre is quite large, and you don't have to worry about not being able to get into any particular film showing.

Don't miss the comments below! And check out my blog and its sidebars for events, links to previous posts and picture posts, and scores of links to other Taiwan blogs and forums!
