Invisible Nation (2023) closes Slamdance 2024 January 25

INVISIBLE NATION is a vital must see film. The film is a look at the thorny situation the island nation of Taiwan is in.  Stuck in the unenviable position of being one of the great commercial powers of the world, it is in a quasi-nation status officially because no one wants to piss off Mainland China. As Chinese begin to make moves to try and take the island back, this film will explain what is going on.  Focusing on the tenure of Tsai Ing-wen, the first female president of Taiwan, the film explains how she came to power and how she has to walk a tightrope

While the world is currently focused on the Middle East a lot of people are forgetting that the Taiwan/China  situation is threatening to cause a conflict on the other side of the globe. I say this because there simply isn't enough reporting of China's belligerent moves, just as they don't report what is going on in Hong Kong. People don't realize that China may very well invade and try to take the country back. Sadly because everyone wants to stay on the good side of the Communist government. This film explains why this is a bad thing.

I'm kind of at a loss for words. This film simply filled me with so much information and anger that I don't know what to say. The information is a look at the whole  history of the country and how it is slowly being made the red headed stepchild. The anger is from the realization that perhaps Taiwan maybe doomed because too many people, including those in the various governments across the globe, are unaware of what is at stake. This film explains what is at stake.

The only thing I can say is just go see this film. Its a calm and reasoned film about a very dangerous situation that could end up very badly.  You need to see this so that you know what is happening because it is going to effect what happens to you.

Highly recommended
