本片的片名為Botel Tobago : The island of Men（其中Botel Tobago即為早期西方人士對蘭嶼的稱呼）
Rituals and daily life of the Yamis, the Men Of-the-Island (Tao Do-Pongso) of Botel Tobago, a small coral island located off the coast of Taiwan (Lanyu), which I filmed in the 1970’s, for the most part, on silent Super 8 film.
Their community practices include the irrigated cultivation of taro as well as dry cultivation such as millet, and fishing. These activities differ according to the three seasons of the lunar year. The whole life of the islanders is centered on the fishing season of the migrating fish, in large and small pirogues – flying fish, dolphinfish and high sea fish – which takes place from March to July.
