If you have yet to see the film “Beyond Beauty: Taiwan from Above”, which won the Best Documentary at the 2013 Golden Horse Awards, don’t miss this opportunity. If you have watched this film, you would appreciate this precious opportunity even more! “Beyond Beauty: Taiwan from Above was conducted by Director Po-Lin Chi, who used his heart, his loyalty, and his sincerity to document Taiwan’s beauty and sorrow. Back on December 10th 2014, the New England Association of Chinese Professionals (NEACP) hosted a viewing event of the movie. Chi was on site to share his journey of becoming an environmental protection advocate. Through his film, people were astonished about Taiwan’s hidden beauty but also the startling truth of environment destruction by mankind.

Since then, Director Chi continued spending years of effort filming the 2nd one, Beyond Beauty II. Chi wanted the viewers to give deep thoughts and take actions to protect the beloved Taiwan’s environment. Chi made selfless sacrifices in filming to promote his ideology of “seeing the world and imaging the future through Taiwan”. Regretfully, Chi died in a helicopter crash during filming on June 10th this year. In memory of Director Chi, NEACP along with Taiwanese associations in the greater Boston area would like to invite you to join us for watching the replay of “Beyond Beauty: Taiwan from Above”.

你如果沒有看過 “看見台灣”,不要錯過這個機會;你如果已經看過 “看見台灣”,更要珍惜這個機會。紐英崙中華專業人員協會曾經在 2014 年 12 月 10 日播放 “看見台灣”,齊柏林導演用他的眼、他的心,忠實和虔誠紀錄了台灣的美麗與哀愁。齊導演在現場和大家分享他關懷環保的心路歷程,大家除了對台灣美麗的驚豔之外,對環境被摧殘破壞更是觸目驚心。齊導演籌劃多年的 “看見台灣 2”,是為了 “立足台灣,放眼世界,想像未來”,給台灣的關門主義、鎖國政策,提供更多反省和思考。他無怨無悔的付出,千辛萬苦博命拍攝,他壯志未酬,求仁得仁。為了向齊柏林導演表達追悼和致敬,專協和波士頓地區僑團一起再 “看見台灣”。
