Director Statement

Lamppost is not only a story about the relationship between a father and his son, but rather an appreciation to the older generations. They are really the lampposts, the enlighteners who brought light to this world in difficult times. Thanks to those hard works, younger generations are capable of spreading the light even stronger and farther.
