Formosa Betrayed

Opens in Taiwan in August, but was released on DVD in the U.S. yesterday. I'll go to see it, but I expect to be disappointed. A film about a minority political interest is never likely to gather much attention outside of Taiwan-fanatics like me and that being the probable case, I would prefer there to be no dumbing-down or over-portrayal at all. Still, for those unfamiliar with the political history of Taiwan and who do not understand precisely why ECFA, for example, is not at all about free trade, this film may well have some educational value. Michael Turton has a review as does J.Michael Cole.
