Pollution threatens the water supply of poor farming communities in Taiwan.

Black investigates water pollution in Taiwan and its consequences for both the environment and poor communities who rely on contaminated crops. It asks, why have factories been allowed to sprout amidst green fields? How can a country address the issue of food security when it turns a blind eye to the poisoning of its croplands? Renowned documentary film director Ke Chin-yuan poses sharp questions about how pollution affects the livelihoods of the poor in a country increasingly concerned with environmental degradation and food safety. In Mandarin with English subtitles.
