KAOHSIUNG, Taiwan -- Like the eye of a silent stalker, a camera follows several elderly Taiwanese as they talk about living through one-party brutality. Their faces do not hide the toll of age and pain. Born at the tail end of 50 years of Japanese occupation, they grew up under the iron fist of Chiang Kai-shek's nationalist Kuomintang, the party that took control in 1945 and brought all its forces to the island in 1949 after losing the Chinese civil war against the Communist Party.
