When referring specifically to the death penalty in Taiwan, one must take into account transitional justice, it has after all been transforming from one that just ...years ago experienced the cruelty and barbarity of the White Terror.

Minnanese director Cheng Wen-tang, has always concerned with issues of fairness and the struggles of the common people in Taiwan. In his recent films, such as 'tears' has decided to take on the topics of fairness, forgiveness and regret in the justice system. Here he talks briefly about transitional justice.

I was born in sunny Torbay on the south western coast of England's green and pleasant lands. I'm prowling the streets, parks and ruins of Taiwan hunting for absurdities and studying the sociology of the underground. Furthermore with our nomadic arts and action space "The Hole" we attempt to challenge rigid and alienating structures.
