Press Reference Material for the Release of the MAC Short Film: "Exchange: As Simple and Natural as Life Itself"

  • Date:2017-01-23

The Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) released a short film entitled "Exchange: As Simple and Natural as Life Itself." The film hopes to convey, through the campus studies and daily life situations of Mainland students in Taiwan, that exchanges among young students across the Taiwan Strait are in fact as simple and natural as living and breathing.

To more closely hear the voices of young people, the film was produced by a team directed entirely by young recent graduates. It stars two Mainland students who have studied in Taiwan for more than two years: Chu-jun Zhuang, a third-year graduate student of the Department of Communication and Technology at National Chiao Tung University; and Jia-xin Chen, a third-year student of the Department of Speech Communication at Shih Hsin University. The two Mainland students share their impressions of Taiwan, cross-Strait cultural differences, and the influences on their life ahead. Chu-jun Zhuang describes Taiwan as an extremely hip and fresh. She says that, when studying abroad, one needs to completely immerse in the local life to truly feel part of it. Jia-xin Chen said that, in Taiwan, she has learned how to be soft and to go with the flow. In particular, the many helpful people she met on her backpacking travels have made her more open-minded.

The MAC said that it was very fortunate to be able to invite these two outstanding Mainland students to participate. It is very grateful to the students for their full assistance in bringing this meaningful short film to completion. The students are even more commendable for the natural and true-to-life effect they present through their sincerity, frankness, and natural manner. They fully convey a more "inclusive" and "coherent" image of cross-Strait youth and student exchanges and the need to cherish precious friendships across the Taiwan Strait with a more "open" and "sincere" mind.

The MAC explained that if students on both sides can make friends during their youth, with the enthusiasm and goodwill of this time, those friendships will become increasingly close with the mellowing of time. The MAC also hoped that these students can share their experiences of Taiwan's democracy, freedom, rich cultural heritage and soft power with other young students across the Taiwan Strait to play an active and key role in promoting lasting peace and steady development in cross-Strait relations.
