Screening Schedule:

:The War that Never Was

Taiwan, 2017, 16 min

The filmmaker interviews his mother, who was born in 1938 in a poor region of Taiwan, about her life as a wife, a mother and a labor. With her life dedicated to daily survival, global affairs seem to have little meaning to her. She has never even heard of the idea of the Cold War.
