Of Shadows

Set in the unique landscape of China's Loess Plateau, Of Shadows captures the liveliness and resilience of a group of local shadow play artists navigating between the rural staging of ancient plays and the urban spectacle of national cultural heritage.

Ice Monster

‘Elephant in the room’ is an English-language metaphorical idiom for an obvious problem or risk no one wants to discuss or challenge. This work depicts three unfinished journeys that took place at three locations and three different periods of time and space. This work delineates a foreign journey of two young people, a universe-migration of an astronaut, and the inner vision of a Burma immigrant.
This film represents the situation and choices of people in different situations with five narrative paragraphs. Tourists run into 'invisible elephants' one by one during their trip.
