What Is Law?

Through animations, we’ve adapted some well-known cases in Taiwan that many people online don’t understand, trying to infuse the law and legal logic into young people’s mind and help them to speculate.
In the episode, the police officer, Lin Zhi-cheng, got a call saying someone tried to wreck and steal a car in the suburbs. However, when he arrived at the scene, the drunk perpetrator began to throw stones at him and some passers-by and even attempted to run away in the patrol car. In utter chaos and without support, Lin Zhi-cheng chose to fire his gun but shot the perpetrator dead accidentally. Do you think that he is guilty?

Director Statement

With animations, we’re showing the controversial verdicts that have been talked about a lot online in Taiwan. If you look at them closely, you’ll see that they’re angry because of their bias or they don’t understand the concepts of crime and punishment. There’s no absolute right or wrong. It depends on how you look at something. If we’ll help young people know the law better with these animations, it’s a great beginning for our production team to enter the domain of internet media.
