TaiwaneseAmerican.org and the 2nd generation Taiwanese American organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area proudly present the 2010 Annual Lunar New Year celebration of the Taiwanese American community highlighting the theme “Projecting Our Presence” as it applies to media, representation, and our own personal paths.
This special event features the production team and actors behind the upcoming Hollywood motion picture FORMOSA BETRAYED! A political action thriller set in 1980’s Taiwan, it follows a web of intrigue and surprise through the eyes of an FBI detective (played by James Van Der Beek of Dawson’s Creek) assigned to investigate the murder of a Taiwanese American professor and gives a glimpse of a democracy movement that shaped this island nation.
Starting the weekend of Feb 26-28, FORMOSA BETRAYED will begin opening in theaters nationwide! We are proud to present producer/actor Will Tiao, director/producer Adam Kane (Heroes), associate producer Jon Lee, actor Tzi Ma (Rush Hour), actor Adam Wang, and actor Henry Chu at our gathering. The event will be preceded by brief presentations on the history of Taiwan upon which the movie is set and an introduction by author Shawna Yang Ryan discussing Asian Americans and our emergence in the media.
