Private Project


Jie is a boy in his early twenties who works as an apprentice at a wedding photography base.
Jie is kind and clumsy, not good at words. Jie dreams of becoming a photographer, but the photos he takes are filled with darkness and loneliness, and he has never even photographed humans.
Jie and his father live together, but the father and son avoid each other and do not want to meet.
Compared to reality, Jie prefers to live in a dreamlike world filled with warm memories.In the world of fantasy, his mother is always young and beautiful, and his friends are still innocent and lovely.Their companion made Ajie feel love.In fact, when Jie was very young, his mother had already passed away due to illness, and his good friend also moved to the big city with his family.
It wasn't until he met the girl Meizhi who was looking for him to take photos that Jie began to feel the beauty of real life, and even developed a hazy love for Meizhi.Jie began to try to bid farewell to those who had passed away, to reconcile with the sad past, and to reconcile with his father.
Jie did not realize that a new separation was approaching step by step...

Director Statement

This is a movie about themes such as dreams and reality, memory and forgetting, life and separation.
Life is a long farewell.
There are unexpected separations,regretful separations, forced separations, hasty separations, carefully settled separations, and eternal separations…
Everyone experiences various separations in their lifetime.Most people don't know how to face parting, we just silently endure it. Like Jie in the movie.
What I want to express is, don't be afraid of the moments of parting, they are also important parts of life.Love is the root cause that makes people feel the pain of parting, and it is also a good medicine for healing pain.
Dreams, imagination, memories, and reality make up our complete life.
