Director Statement

"The Closet Man" originated from a friend of mine. His parents used him as a bond to maintain their bad marriage. He said that the most terrible thing for him in the world is not death, but eating at the table with his parents. The three of them are so reluctant that the suffocating air can break him. The so-called vulnerable children, in fact, there are some children who are ignored by the original family. When they are in danger, there is no one to rescue them; when they are tempted, there is no one to guide them. One by one, they are hesitating in their growth, lost in their exploration, and lonely in the dark to find "who should I be?" Finally, they grows up and seems to integrate into the society, but they can never answer "who am I?" In this sense, children spent their life numbly and mediocrely. Therefore, I hope that this film can arouse the attention of society and families. The invisible harm to children is the cancer that affects their life.
