MFA first year film, Film 16mm, 5:41 mins. Shot with a Bolex(Athens International Film/Video Festival 2011)

a 05:41:25 film is an experimental narrative shot as my first film work. It was written, directed and shot by myself. It is about a Chinese girl living in the U.S. who, while indulging herself in a typical American party, has a bizarre and fatal encounter with a traditional Chinese incarnation of herself. This short tries to discuss the identity of an Americanized Chinese, or, the Americanized China under the overwhelming momentum of globalization. China wants to find her past, hopes to resist American values by conjuring old tradition, but the effort is in vain.
