Lost Black Cats- 35th Squadron
Director Jonathan Yang 楊佈新 | 2018 | 92 mins | All Ageswith English and Mandarin subtitles 含中英文字幕
A powerful documentary about the Taiwanese pilots involved in the American U-2 project to uncover China’s development of nuclear weapons in the 1960s and 1970s. Half a century later, director Jonathan Yang interviews remaining pilots including those who were hit by missiles during their spy activities. Through re-enactment and fantastic graphics, the pilots share their experiences and reflect on the significance of their mission. For which country were they really sacrificing their lives?
耗費六年、走訪美中台三地完成的紀錄片《疾風魅影-黑貓中隊》，內容聚焦於冷戰時期與美國合作「快刀計畫」，一支重要且神秘的隊伍「黑貓中隊」，在時空流轉之下的唏噓。相隔半個世紀，聽著這些人敘說他們當年駕駛 U-2 偵察機的際遇。進行偵測、拍攝當時中國的武力與核能的開發過程，遭遇著隨時面臨衝擊與死亡的變遷。然而最慘酷的現實卻在終點等著他們。究竟他們是為那個國家犧牲與付出？是冷戰時期美國的犧牲者，還是台灣空軍的英雄？
