PORTRAITS TAIWAN: HUANG HAI-DAI

“Between the dubbing train wreck of Wulin Warriors to the great Japanese/Taiwanese collaboration of Thunderbolt Fantasy, the art of Budaixi, or Taiwanese Glove Puppetry, has been getting international attention, leaving new fans wanting to know more about this wonderful art. 
However, due to the language barrier (and no subtitles) of other Budaixi shows, such as Pili or JinGuang, it has proven difficult for these new fans to do so. 

This documentary is not only one of the few concerning this art that's provided in English but it also goes to the source, showing the historical and religious significance to Budaixi, along with providing a wonderful tribute to the man and his family that helped make all of this possible. I highly recommend this to any old or new fans of Budaixi.”  ( @Diana, 20180525, yesasia.com)
