The Flying Fish – new documentary film about Tao people’s silent battle for their island

Orchid Island, the home of Tao people, has been the storage of Taipower’s nuclear waste since 1982. When they first brought nuclear waste to the Island, the native language didn’t even have a word for it. The newly built storage by the sea was claimed to be a fish cannery.

The Flying Fish documentary is filmmaker Anastasia Lobkovski’s journey to Orchid Island, the place where typhoons and earthquakes meet. The Flying Fish tells about the daily life of the Tao people, their silent battle and unheard voice.

Koverhar – kreativ förstörelse

Koverhar - creative destruction

Lars Westerholm minns sommaren 2012 som om det var igår. Koverhars stålfabrik söktes i konkurs och Lars miste sitt arbete tillsammans med hundratals andra arbetare. Stålfabriken hade fungerat i 50 år och nu skulle den rivas. Hangö fastnade i den industriella strukturomvandlingens hjul.

Strukturomvandlingen och den kreativa förstörelsens mekanism orsakar problem men skapar också nya möjligheter. Hur hittar man nytt jobb åt de som blev arbetslösa efter Koverhar och hur skapar man en ljusare framtid för Hangö när de gamla strukturerna rasar?
