電影簡介: http://www.scanews.com/2009/10/s1001/100121/


這部電影敘述在偵查一個小鎮裡臺美人教授被謀殺的案件中,一位對司法公正己失去信心的警探,慢慢地發掘一些在美國大學校園裡祕密進行多年的國際陰
謀。藉著這被害者的妻子所提供的線索以及一個台灣派來的間諜之助,這個警探發現他正走向一道不歸途-正要撞上美國國務院、中國黑社會的幫派組織、更不可思
議的,也終將撞上國民黨政府的最高階層。

「被出賣的台灣」是好萊塢有史以來第一部描述70及80年代台灣民主及獨立運動人士奮鬥過程的電影。電影情節取材自遇害的陳文成博士、記者江南、及在白色恐佈時代無數犧牲性命的民主及獨立運動人士。


故事由刁毓能(Will
Tiao)及好萊塢編劇依白色恐佈時期真實事件改編而成。電影場景由一名美國幹員調查1982年陳文成教授謀殺案開始。這名幹員發現陳教授曾被國民黨派遣
的特務學生所監控,於是他遠赴台灣緝兇,才發現原來這椿命案其實是國民黨政治陰謀的一部份,謀殺陳文成教授目的是為了鎮壓剛萌芽的台灣獨立運動。

刁毓能(Will
Tiao)表示「多年來,台灣人總希望看到一部能呈現台灣人追求國家認同百折不撓、艱苦奮鬥的電影,類似為猶太人拍的辛德勒的名單」,「這部片主要呈現兩
個基調--正義與認同,這是台灣人社區中已完全理解與接受的兩種價值觀。」刁毓能(Will
Tiao)接著說這部片對台灣人是一考驗,不像南美或者前蘇聯,台灣過去從未有因
應獨裁政權的經驗。此時是團結台灣人力量完成這部片的時刻,如此才能讓全世界瞭解作為一個台灣人真正的意義。」


The movie  “Formosa-Betrayed” will open theatrically this Friday(2/26) in
Boston at *AMC Boston
Commons<http://www.fandango.com/amcloewsbostoncommon19_aapnv/theaterpage>
* (175 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02111). Show times will be posted early
this week (
http://www.facebook.com/l/e24fc;www.screenmediafilms.net/theatricalDates/formosaBetrayed.html
.)

 According to the film maker, the opening weekend box office numbers are
critical for these will determine how long the movie stay in theaters and
dictate how wide of a national release it get. Therefore, please reserve
your time for it if you would like to support/watch the first Hollywood
cinema highlighting Taiwan’s historical/ contemporary dilemma in the
post-war US-Taiwan-China triangular relations. It would be even better if
you can invite your friends, be them Taiwanese, American, Chinese or anyone
who might be interested in this story, to watch this movie together.

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, 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.



Sincerely,

The makers of *Formosa Betrayed*

version of this letter attached, as well as the Official Formosa Betrayed
poster!
