Living with Differences: Making Ends Meet

In this scene we see an elderly man hard at work, chopping bamboos in order to sell. The bamboos are his only source of income so it is essential that he chops with precision and care. Bamboo is an enormously popular delicacy in Taiwan so the market for these foods is healthy. The elderly man is living in peace in a thriving, bustling arena, ignoring his active surroundings while intently concentrating on his craft. In the background we also see another vendor selling traditional Taiwanese food. In addition, we see a man on motorcycle abruptly entering this bazaar represented by the blur behind the elderly man. the backgroundThis all takes place at one of Taiwan’s bustling bazaars, which are becoming more and more uncommon due to the rise of the modern supermarkets and department stores owned by large corporations. The energy is simply incredible at these bazaars. Motorcycles, mopeds, the elderly, adults, children, and even cars roam the pathways of this energetic arena.
