The talk discusses the two movies Seediq Bale (2011, directed by Te-Sheng Wei) and Kano (2014, directed by Umin Boya [also known as Ma Chih-hsiang] and produced by Te-Sheng Wei), which talks about the story of the Kano baseball team, in order to explain the theoretical implications of the virtual in Taiwan’s situation.
