 "Every year, month, and day, historical images are discarded or gradually deteriorated somewhere, whether they are documentaries, dramas, or experimental films, related to families, communities, ethnic groups, countries... these are all part of Taiwan's important memories." The Multi-Media Center stated that this exhibition will feature thematic lectures and screenings of digitally restored films, hoping to deepen local connections through the preservation and activation of audiovisual archives.

The first episode of the digitally restored version of "Love Amongst War" will be screened outdoors in the newly renovated B1 outdoor space of the NCKU Library, aiming to lead the audience to understand the importance of audiovisual archive preservation and start looking for their own family old images to reconstruct the history of audiovisual culture and revitalize the gradually disappearing memories of Taiwan.
