In the era of authoritarian martial law, the right to speak history was controlled by the government, full of praise for the party and praise for those in power. Ushered in the era of loud noises.
In recent years, we have seen "Back to School" adapting job email list the history of white terror into a genre film, "Scarlo" recreates the history of aboriginal people on the scale of a big river drama, "Tea Gold" written by Xiao Jian Da about tea and Hakka people interaction "The Magician on the Skybridge" records the history of the building in a magical and realistic way.History writing seems to be a large chorus, with more and more people joining different voices to write and watch from different angles, together to make up for the hollowed-out life experience of the island of Taiwan.
However, this choir is missing a voice, an obvious but long-ignored voice, they are not silent, just because most people can't understand their language, they turn that history on deaf ears. "The Wandering Age " discovers that voice and stares at that period of history. As a historical film with a new immigrant view of history, it leads the audience to re-examine the changes of the times in Taiwan in the past 20 years from a different perspective.
