Getting to Know Asia
This text will be replaced with a player.
Intro :
This section starts from ancient Asian civilization and focuses on the architecture of the museum, which was built to reflect symbolically the exchanges between different civilizations. Apart from the diverse cultures present in the vast geographic area of Asia, the film also emphasizes the similarities within these different cultures. The film looks at Asia on a macro and micro scale, slowly focusing into their daily lives. Thanks to Taiwan’s perfect geographic location, it has never missed any opportunities of cultural exchange. The similarities Taiwan has with other Asian regions come from two of the most influential Asian civilizations: India and China.
