The Disassociative Collective

"Ditchwork" is a filmic meditation on movement, ancestry, and memory. Set in Hong Kong, we follow a young Eurasian woman grieving over the recent passing of her estranged Chinese grandmother. Haunted by the ambiguous loss, she exercises a series of rituals as a means of grieving.

A brother / sister collaboration between director Simon Liu and choreographer / performer Jennie MaryTai Liu, the film was shot on location in Sheung Shui, a village in rural Hong Kong where the Liu’s paternal ancestors settled four hundred years ago.
