For decades, the wetlands of Hukou in Yunlin County served as fertile farmland for the locals. When nature turned the land back into wetlands, they became a tourist attraction for those seeking proof of Taiwan’s natural beauty. However, nature’s unpredictable change also turned the residents into “climate refugees”. One of Huang’s most acclaimed films and winner of the Jury Award at the 2010 Taiwan International Documentary Festival, this empathetic short film shows the very real effects of climate change on ordinary people.
