Vienna Taiwan Film Weekend

Taiying - Taiwan Youth

Admiral Kino
Burggasse 119, 1070 Wien


We will show and discuss the film "Our Youth in Taiwan". The film and its historic background will be introduced by Leon Kunz (PhD Candidate): The Sunflower Movement: Student-led Civil Disobedience?

Focus: A brief history of the protests and developments leading up to a mass enactment of civil disobedience by young people in the Sunflower Movement. I will briefly discuss how civil disobedience was enacted in the movement and what we can learn from the Taiwanese experience. I will also touch on questions of movement composition, tensions between different generations of activists, and the changing symbolic role of student participants in Taiwanese protests.
