The Limbo's Voyage

Everyone has the unique definition of emancipation, yet, few of them understand how to navigate their life with own philosophy. The film has told three mini stories of a family indulged in fatal choice of aimless desire which incorporated with both experimental and narrative ways. The film has included three short poems and symbolism of technology, religion, time, greed, consumerism, hope, existence, death, and subconsciousness.

The film is supported by Indiana University Media School and High-End Media Production. The entire production is conducted under the strict limitation of the global pandemic.

Director Statement

The story comes from my personal life, but it is also more than an individual's perspective. "The limbo's voyage" gives a holistic examination of the recurring theme through the display of symbolism and poetic narration. The premise comes from the Buddhist poisons that we are carrying from the day we were born. We slowly forget the meaning of our journey. In the end, our lives are only driven by sheer desire. However, we should never forget that only our hope can take down this jail. The stories are inspired by Dante's Inferno, “No longer human" by Osamu Dazai, and the Greek mythology of Pandora's box.
