The objectives of the research were 1) to synthesize the events that happened in the community through a focus group and an in-depth interview, and 2) to undertake the participatory film shooting in which local residents participated in. The study found that the samples developed a positive attitude. They viewed that the participatory short film development was an activity which made the community members pay attention to their own background. Besides, the activities could create a good feeling to both new settlers and old-time residents. In addition, the activities bring the locals closer to their community history
