Interesting little sentimental documentary on a slice of little known Sino-Japanese history. Translated of the Chinese blurb: "Wansei (灣生) refers to Japanese who were born in Taiwan during the colonial period. After WWII, wansei were repatriated to Japan. They were Taiwanese, but were forced to live in Japan; they were Japanese, but were not accepted by the Japanese society. After 70 years of waiting, this group of “Wansei” finally had a chance to come back to Taiwan, to their beloved hometown. "Wansei Back Home" took 12 years of field interviews and five years of filming production. It doesn't only tell the stories of Wansei, but also tells stories of friendships and family ties, life's true meaning, and bravery when facing the harsh adversity."

From Taipei Times:
Wansei Back Home began as a personal project when Mika Tanaka first visited Jian Township (吉安) in 2003, when she was determined to learn more about her late grandmother, who had kept her wansei identity secret.

Since then, Tanaka has found over 200 survivors, most in their 70s and 80s, across Japan and Taiwan. She teamed up with a Taiwanese film crew, including director Huang Ming-cheng (黃銘正) and composer Baby C (鍾興民), and produced an intimate, heartfelt portrait of the wansei through interviews, old photographs, archival footage and animated sequences.

Featured songs are Taiwanese ballads Flowers in the Rainy Night (雨夜花) and “Hometown『念鄉』” adapted from Furusato (ふるさと) . Watch trailer in “Videos.”

Hometown『念鄉』lyrics:

The mountain where I chased after rabbits
曾經追過兔子的 那座山
And the stream where I fished for little carp
曾經釣過鯽魚的 那條河
I still dream of them until this day
現在只能在夢中重逢
My unforgettable hometown
永遠忘不了的 我的故鄉

爸爸和媽媽 你們都好嗎?

我的兒時玩伴 大家都平安嗎?

每逢風吹雨落 

我都會想起故鄉......

只要我達成夢想

總有一天一定會回去(衣錦還鄉)

那個樹木濃密的 我的故鄉

那個流水清澈的 我的故鄉
