She said that she can see time fling by in a movie, which makes her feel extremely good. She likes to create and produce black stream of consciousness movies and experimental movies. Her objective is to explore people's inner world through her works and combine some theoretical knowledge to create a scaffold for the content of the film. At the same time, Fei hopes to find an opportunity to hold a solo exhibition of her own in the future, which will include her film and television works, photography works, installation art, as well as her paintings, in hopes that the audience can get to know her through the exhibition, and at the same time know the group of people who are not talkative.

Director Statement

This film describes the story of a patient with mental disease. The conceptual concerns of this project are surrounding humans 'mental problems. With the change of time, there are 240 million people suffering from mental disorders among the population of 1.39 billion in China today, with a prevalence rate of as high as 17.5%, which is a question worth discussing in depth. In the case that more and more people suffer from mental illnesses, the part of people’s mental problems are often seen as maladies whose results cannot be determined, or with the increase of social stress, many emotional people, judging themselves as having a mental illness, then succeed in being brainwashed and become true psychopaths. Both of the above are the subjects of this film. The latter is also the theory of this script that will be addressed in this project.
