Phrases are picked out From Taiwan Jiu Shi Tan (Taiwan Old Tales) by Lin Dongchen first published in 1979 April 15th and films are shot in the location mentioned in the book. In this book, the author depicts Taiwan during the times of Japanese occupation from second hand information. I have never been through those period, hence for me they only exist/non exist in a elusive and ghostly form, but always on my mind.

我從一本民國68年4月15日初版,林東辰所著的書籍《台灣舊事譚》中挑選段落字句,於書中所紀錄的地點,拍攝製作了八支影片。這本書經作者二手或三手的資料,描述著日本治台時期所發生的事件。那是我還沒出生的時代,我想像著他們的幻影。
