天體潟湖 Celestial Lagoon
Stefano Giannotti / 2016 / Italy, Netherlands / video art / 6min / Italian / Chinese and English subtitles / Asia premier
- 2017 Lucca Film Festival
Celestial Lagoon. Impossible cities, eccentric architecture, made up of pieces from other cities, seemingly taken at random…ships, trains, cars, bicycles, pedestrians moving on the streets, squares and streams…A blue sea busy with swimmers. A song that is both sweet and restless, sung by a young girl’s voice, a text that speaks of colors, of their parameters and their meanings…

The explorers wander in the city on their own, passing by places we are familiar with. What we are used to in our daily lives become unique in the world of the explorers. The daring style and undisguised personal attitude are matched with the hustle and bustle of the traditional market, the busy lanes and alleys in the city, the crosswalk and traffic lights, the tranquility of the Taiwanese temple and etc. In those scenes, the appearance of the explorers seems so odd yet so glamorous.

鍾任壁 The Puppet Master
餅乾 Aurélien Jegou / 2017 / 台灣 / 劇情、紀錄 / 9分鐘 / 國語 / 中英字幕 / 世界首映
The puppets represent the Puppet Master’s inner thoughts. His puppets are his life. So when he faces a dilemma, he expresses himself, his questions, his problems, through his puppets. That is why we want to reinforce the impression of intimacy with the lights. It’s like we’re inside a cocoon, inside his head. For that matter, I observed that puppets can be very expressive, and can carry feelings, with very simple movements (a nod of their head, a hand raising, etc.).
