Modern day Taiwan is in many ways a reflection of ancient China, preserving the cultural legacy of one of the oldest existing civilisation.

THE DRAGON LEGACY brings to light some of these enduring traditions in art. It offers insight on how calligraphy, painting and opera have become highly refined art forms over the centuries.

This film also explores Chinese philosophy and religion, from Confucius to Taoism, as it is still being practised. In present day Taiwan, as in ancient China, daily life and the afterlife, the past and the present, are all inextricably linked.

THE DRAGON LEGACY is an immersion into the past of the fascinating and complex Chinese cultural heritage.
