NEWS: Screening Tour of Documentary Series ‘Time Firsts: Women Who Are Changing the World’ in Taipei
Co-organized by the Ministry of Culture and the American Institute in Taiwan, the tour is showcasing a 58-minute movie comprised of selected episodes from “Time Firsts: Women Who Are Changing the World,” a short documentary series by Taiwan-American filmmaker Diane Tsai and released by U.S.-based Time magazine.
Figures profiled in the 24 works featured in the compilation include former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, LGBTQ rights advocate and TV show host Ellen DeGeneres, architect Maya Lin, astronaut Kathryn Sullivan and tennis player Serena Williams.
In addition to marking TRA40 and highlighting the strong cultural and people-to-people links between Taiwan and the U.S., it is hoped that the documentary can help spur discussion on women’s roles in society, the MOC said.
