Abstract:

"A timely, unprecedented look at Taiwan's struggle for direction, this program focuses on President Chen Shui-Bian and his sometimes subtle, sometimes blatant push for independence. The video follows Chen's elaborate attempts to bolster alliances in the region and maintain a favorable image at home -- both of which are major challenges as many countries increase ties with Beijing and Chen's domestic opponents gain political strength. A summary of China-Taiwan relations, interviews with opposition leader Su Qi, and commentary from Taiwanese citizens complete this unsettling portrait of a nation that could, through a wrong turn, spark a global military conflict."--FFH web page.
