(awaken)is an experimental creative film that
based on the fish men in my home town to
explore the gental relationship between people
and nature. the sea has been frozen. And
then the flim explored the living situation of fish
man through that the fish man has to wait the
frozen sea to melt only after that they can go
fishing.there is no any dialogue, observing in a
cold, single angle. There is a mixture between
objective and subjective scence, and the
wonderful sound in the working area stimulates
audiences hearing directly; every scence in the
film may enlarge the feeling between people and
things. fish man, his boat, and waiting the frozen
sea to melt, multiple perspectives have been
used in my work. but in fact, the real situation is
more complicated and interesting.
