TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A short film featuring the breathtaking beauty of attractions on the Matsu Islands was released on Tuesday (Jan. 11).

The film, titled “Island Brew,” was made to promote a series of art events to be held on the island from Feb. 12 to April 10. It features Chen Nien-chin (陳念琴), a local boxing champion who participated in the Tokyo Olympics last year, as a resident giving directions to a tourist who asks for her help.

The General Association of Chinese Culture said in a press release that the 150-second video accurately presents the natural and cultural essence of Matsu.

In order to present the beauty of the outlying island county, the association invited director Harry Ke (柯景瀚) to shoot the video, the release said. Sharing his feelings about producing the film, Ke said that Matsu is a cinematic destination where time has brewed its beauty, including the old houses made of stone.
