The world's first 8K resolution environmental documentary, "Water with Life", funded by Delta Electronics Foundation, using the classic scenes of the documentary as the venue during the Double Ten Holidays in 2019, was held a night public welfare screening of "8K Projection at the Sun Moon Lake - Converging Greatness" at the Sun Moon Lake Ita Shao Pier, inviting tourists to watch the same frame for free. People gathered to participate in the world's largest outdoor 8K projection event. In addition to bringing viewers closer to water resources and the environment through 8K video, the screening also invited international-level performance groups, the Taiwan Vox Nativa Children's Choir to perform, and Ita Thao Dance Performers, to recreate the relationship between water and culture, bringing unprecedented visual and spiritual feasts to the audience by the Sun Moon Lake.
"Water with Life" has made its debut on the NHK BS 8K satellite channel in Japan and the National Museum of Natural Sciences in Taiwan since late March 2019. It has been praised by many government decision-makers and elites at home and abroad. In response to the expectations of all walks of life, the Delta Foundation specially arranged a charity screening on October 10 and 11, 2019 at the Sun Moon Lake Ita Shao Pier, an internationally renowned attraction.
Sponsored by Delta Foundation, the 45-minute "Water with Life" production was filmed by Japan's NHK Enterprises and is the world's first 8K environmental feature documentary. It displays a plethora of water scenery in Taiwan during the 4 different seasons of the year. More than 50 professionals were involved in the creation of the film during a period of 1 year and 9 months. Through the 8K detailed images, the public can see the relationship between climate change, water environment, and human activities, including the lichen moss disappearing in the Chilan Mountains of Yilan, the repopulation of Taiwan salmon in Qijiawan Creek, Taichung, and the Sun Moon Lake Thao culture of living by water and the bleaching of corals in Kenting, Pingtung, calling on everyone to face up to global warming and water resources.
