[[abstract]]Abstract In the process of globalization, multiculturalism has become the norm. The creation of a community, its culture, and the community's common memory should be the source of the “Plan for Digital Archives”. Our country’s National Technology Plan for National Digital Archives mainly focuses on animals, plants, geology, anthropology, files, artifacts, books, paintings, maps and telemeter images, inscriptions on stone tablets and bronze pieces, ancient books, archaeology, and news. However, as the creation of local culture community and multiculturalism have become increasingly important, should we pay more attention to the recording and preservation of local culture and oral history, which are so closely linked to our daily lives? Digital Archives should not be just words and numbers. Instead, the stories and the common memories of the people should be included, which are separated from the technical aspects of digital archives and more human. The majority of people living in Shin- chu area are a part of Hakka subculture of Taiwan. This Hakka culture has not been well-known until recent promotion of the local communities and subcultures. As an heir of Hakka people, Hakka is my mother tongue and Hakka spirit is my foundation. It is important and meaningful for me to understand and preserve Hakka culture. This research attempts to use a documentary film to record memories of a community. Through the process of filming and recording subjects talking about their family and life, I hope to provide multiple views of lives and a live image record which might be used to reflect the family throughout Taiwan. This film is the record of the lives of the members of one family, and the dialogue between these family members. In this film, I hope to provide: 1.A sample of a 21st century Taiwanese family memory (Hakka) 2.A glimpse of the life style and thinking of one family, which may be used as a reference for Taiwanese life education 3.An image of Taiwanese-Hakka female 4.An example for modern women who are thinking about the value of the life and eager to change their lives 5.A practical and feasible model for local cultural digital archives
