Dear Friend of Taiwan,


Coming soon to theaters, Formosa Betrayed is a political thriller that marks
the first time Hollywood cinema has explored the contentious issue of
Taiwan's right to self-determination and independence from China. Set to
open in select theaters starting February 26th, Formosa Betrayed stars James
Van Der Beek, Will Tiao and Tzi Ma. With the recent uproar over President
Obama's arms sale to Taiwan and the building coverage of the 2010 US Census,
more and more attention is being drawn to US-Taiwan-China politics and the
importance of forging a unique Taiwanese identity. Formosa Betrayed
addresses these issues and more and has the potential to make a huge impact
on the way the world views our community. It is now up to us to make sure
that the true story behind our heritage is seen by as many eyes as possible.


Though Formosa Betrayed was made by Taiwanese Americans and is the untold
story of our elder Taiwanese, it is essential that more than just those that
already know the story and history come see the film -- we must encourage
ALL of our friends to come and begin to understand the complicated web of
relations between the US, Taiwan and China. We need support from ALL AGES in
ALL AREAS to not only see this movie but to also bring friends and family to
fill those theater seats! High numbers of attendance at our screenings will
draw attention and create dialogue about Taiwan in mainstream America and in
our own local communities that is critical to increasing support and
awareness of Taiwan.


Formosa Betrayed has already captivated audiences of all ages and races in
film festivals from New York to LA, San Diego to Philadelphia, Montreal to
Sao Paulo, and back, thanks to a dramatic storyline and a talented
multi-ethnic cast featuring many Asian and Taiwanese-Americans. For more
information about Formosa Betrayed, visit www.formosathemovie.com
<http://www.formosathemovie.com/> , or find the "Formosa Betrayed: The
Movie" group on Facebook. From both sites you can watch and read press
coverage of the film, from ABC News to MTV to the Taipei Times. More
importantly, you can stay updated on cities and theaters where Formosa
Betrayed will be shown so you can tell friends around the nation to check it
out. We believe NOW is the time to share our story and definitively
distinguish ourselves as Taiwanese, separate and independent from China. As
our current President said, change does not start in Washington D.C., change
starts with us.

Thanks again for your support, and feel free to forward this email to your
own communities.
