Bio-filmography of Director
《烤鸡 Roast Chicken》 2012
“In this world, things are always connected.” I had planned to shoot two films, with the same main performers. For various causes, the progress of them was not very satisfactory. So in the end I simply put the clips of the two parts together. The process of making this bizarre film, is a process of experimenting and gaming. I want to explore universal spiritual experience and I’m obsessed with this. However I don’t intend to raise any questions, nor to resolve any problems. The “Gossip ” is probably originated from this and the film structure is also from this. According to the legend, The eight trigrams means “Universe”, The eight trigrams evolves hexagrams, but the talking of contemporary people about “The eight trigrams”, mostly means “gossip”. This story depends entirely on how you look at it. It’s not even a story. Truth,maybe means illusion;Fiction could be real too.
