Formosa Betrayed Movie Website

Just a quickie in between errands -- Marc in Taipei flipped me this link to the official website of the new movie Formosa Betrayed. Now in pre-production, the movie is based on the murder of a Carnegie-Mellon Professor, Chen Wen-chen, in 1981 in Taiwan, apparently by KMT security forces. The Taipei Times has some more here on the case. Jerome has reporter Tina Chou's article on getting kicked out of Taiwan for using the world "autopsy" in connection with the case.

I'm really looking forward to this movie -- it will be a great profile raiser and sympathy generator for Taiwan.
