The Extra's Journey
Acting is a very mysterious job. If you are new to this business, you’ll certainly encounter a lot of difficulties such as low pay, long working hours, and no guarantee of future employment. But there are always people who want to chase their dreams, trying everything they can just to get into the acting business.
We document three extra actors from different generations in Taiwan. Through their stories, we discover how they struggle to pursue their show business dream in Taiwan, and how Taiwan’s role in the Film & TV industry has changed in the Chinese- speaking world.
