WaGaLiGong and The White Devil
WAGALIGONG STUDIOS RELEASES 5 MINUTE TEASER TO ‘ATOA-MIGRATIONS’, THE 6TH TRACK IN THE ARCHIPELAGO SERIES.
‘Atoa’ (literally ‘Big Nose Man’ in Taiwanese) will throw the spotlight on the foreigner cluster, especially the often misunderstood white male, who have made the east coast their home for specific reasons, and in many cases have put down solid roots and started families. Many of these ‘atoa’ are incredibly talented artists, musicians and surfers, but they are also tragically flawed, which can put them in bad light (since they often stand out) and cause resentment and sometimes even xenophobia from Taiwanese, who are generally very accepting of foreigners. In the full length feature I would like to show a more balanced view (the good, the bad and the ugly) of the cultural impact brought about by this recent migration.
This 5 minute teaser is for the the 6th chapter in the Archipelago series, which documents the connections between individuals (the islands) from diverse backgrounds who are part, either through birth or migration, of the diverse cultural community (the archipelago) which is thriving on Taiwan’s east coast.
