Portrait of the second social housing community in Taiwan

At the end of 2017, the first social housing unit of the city of Taichung was built.
In Taiwan as a whole, social housing comprises just 0.08% of the housing stock.
Compared with other advanced countries, this figure is significantly low.
Together with the first residents, documentary filmmaker Floor Hofman moved into
the second social housing unit of Taichung a few weeks after its opening. While
living there for four months, Floor talked with residents about how social housing
changed their lives.
