About The Free China Junk Film
In 1955 Formosa (Taiwan), five young men set out on a journey to find their own version of freedom. With no boat and no sailing experience, they enter an international yacht race in an attempt to venture out of Formosa. As luck would have it, they meet a daring American Vice Consul who asks to join and film the voyage. With nothing more than an old junk boat called the “Free China”, a 16mm camera and their youthful courage, the crew sets sail for California. After various fits and starts, and a host of near-deadly obstacles, the men arrive in San Francisco to a hero’s welcome. Their story is The Free China Junk, a feature-length film that documents the journey of five men who risk their lives to leave behind the tense political environment of 1955 Formosa – and the young diplomat who befriends and records them
