Kano: Origins of Taiwanese Baseball (六分鐘故事預告) / by john cheng

Growing up, my dad did his best to teach us about our heritage and the struggles that were involved for the Taiwanese people. He would tell us the history of Taiwan and the different struggles that his parents faced as well as what the Taiwanese people still face today. 

Even now, he still peppers our lives with the history of Taiwan. Such as the other day when we received an email about the new upcoming movie Kano. The film is about the origins of Taiwanese Baseball during the mid-1920s when Japan occupied Taiwan. During those times there was racial tension between Japanese and Taiwanese people and the film highlights the select few who see beyond racial lines and work together and send a message using the common language of baseball.
