Coined from the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival, this project’s main mission is to display Taiwan’s most outstanding characteristics. To do so, twenty of the most representative directors in Taiwanese cinema were brought together. Each of them made a short film with a runtime of barely five minutes. The diverse pieces contain different hallmarks, depending on the filmmaker: comedy, thriller, monologues, elements from silent movies... Hou Hsiao-hsien, one of the men responsible for the origin of the project, also did one of the shorts: La Belle époque
