ABSTRACT

Li Xing is the first director to produce the ‘Healthy Realism’ film that led the Taiwanese film industry in the 1960s, and is a key figure who made a decisive contribution to helping Healthy Realism firmly take root in the film industry. Healthy Realism was a propaganda film launched in March 1963 proposed by Gong Hong, who was elected as the general manager of the Central Film Corporation, Taiwan’s largest government agency at the time. Through “Our Neighbors”, “Oyster Girl”, and “Beautiful Duckling” related to the Healthy Realism film among the early films produced by Li Xing, this study attempts to look for a clue to the answer to the question of what Healthy Realism is, and also consider what Li Xing's ultimate intention was to convey to the audience through the film. It may contribute to understanding the Taiwanese film history while filling the research gap in the Taiwanese film history in the 1960s, which has been intermittently studied.
