A documentary film directed by Hsieh Chwen-ching (2020) & produced by French Taiwan Studies.
That day, Chieh-an and her friends visited the Blessed Seals House and the shopping area where it’s located, around Longshan Temple. The area used to be called Bangka/Monga, and is the part of Taipei Basin that had been developed the earliest. Blessed House is managed
by Mr. Jhan Jin-yu and his wife. They’ve done manual engraving here for nearly half a century. Later in the day, Min, a young designer, showed Chieh-an and her friends The Huaxi Night Market, known as Snake Alley in the past.
The era of seals is fading away, the flow of people in Snake Alley has dwindled. The image of making seals and the old memories of the area that remain in local culinary culture makes these young friends feel both familiar and distant.
