Every spring, when flying fish are carried to Taiwan by the Kuroshio Current, many fishermen are waiting for them. The most famous traditional flying fish festival is on Orchid Island, where the Tao people have lived for generations.
As a backpacker to Orchid Island, Chia-Chi Tseng made a short film about the flying fish festival, ‘Libangbang’ (flying fish in Orchid Island), which was entered into the Golden Harvest Awards for films and documentaries.
The video above is the trailer to the short film. Click the link to read up on the flying fish season on Orchid Island.
