|Taiwan, 1960s in film|
Many of us are too young to have lived in the 1950s and 60, the heyday of the E.Sha song and dance troupe, however, TELDAP’s film archives allow us to cross the barrier of time and space and pay a visit to the era of E.sha, one of the most famous troupes in Taiwan from 1950s to 1984.
TELDAP newsletter has specially chosen 13 news films relating to dance and entertainment from 1953 to 1967 from the more than 5000 publicly available in the National Film Archives’ Vcenter. We heartly invite you to slowly savor them.
In these films we can see and feel how Taiwan was in the 1950s and 60s, the height of the Cold War. We can also realize that cultures from different sources mixed together on the island, developing art and mass culture. All the local and oversea sources formed Taiwan’s all-embracing international cultural character. The black and white images bring back happy memories of the past to us. We hope you enjoy it.
