Green Team, active between 1986 to 1990, were one of the most important non-mainstream media outlets in Taiwan during the period around the lifting of martial law, when they built up a comprehensive archive of activism documentaries. Only together for four years, they nonetheless honourably upheld their mission to record, disseminate and fight as they documented key social movements in Taiwan.
