Film: Alifu, the Prince/ss
Director: Yu-lin Wang
The film centers on the sexual and ethnic struggles of Alifu, a 25-year-old Paiwan hairdresser who dreams of becoming a woman. As the only surviving child of the tribal chief, who desires his “son” to inherit the tradition, Alifu faces an identity crisis that forces her to contemplate whether she should continue to be a city-dweller or to appreciate the tribal tradition, whether her sexuality should be hidden or allowed to come out.
