Director Statement

In this film I recollect, demolish, and reconstruct memories of my childhood in Beijing, reimagining the past through the sugarcoated lens of the child I once was. Interrupting this is the experience of immigration to America – a colorless and silent experience in comparison to the familiar, frenzied pace of the Chinese capital. There seems to be no reconciliation for the disjunction, except that both are now nothing more than memories, open for yet further reinterpretation and reimagination.
