Taiwanese Director Wei Te-Sheng is currently working on the history series “Taiwan Trilogy,” for which he recently released a casting call for foreign actors and actresses in Taiwan which has immediately a positive response from the members and friends of the foreign community. 

「臺灣三部曲 Taiwan Trilogy」故事是在描述17世紀大航海時代臺灣在世界舞台初登場的樣貌用三部電影呈現三方視角,西拉雅獵人、漢人海盜與荷蘭傳教士的角度講述不同觀點的歷史故事。  

“Taiwan Trilogy” is a tripartite view of Taiwan’s debut on the world stage that begins in the 17th century during the Age of Exploration. 

The stories will be told from the perspectives of Siraya hunters, Han Chinese pirates and Dutch missionaries.
