Fight for Justice
In Mandarin with Chinese & English subtitles
Director: Su Che-hsien
Having witnessed the public being oppressed, four young Taiwanese lawyers joined forces to form a team of defense attorneys. Over the past three years, while Taiwan was undergoing a major change, these attorneys kept their focus on serving the public through the several cases which they had taken on. They fought for the rights of the older workers in the lawsuit between a group of displaced workers and the government. They were also involved in the efforts to subvert the military trial system as well as in the Sunflower Movement where students occupied the legislative chamber.
These attorneys fought strongly for the weak, against the injustice in the state’s administration and legislation, like in The Rebel by Albert Camus.
In the third global wave of democratisation when Taiwan is beginning to shine, democratic stagnation and evolutionary dictatorship seemed to come into picture. This is the time when this team of pro bono attorneys play the role of promoting Taiwan’s democratic progression.
