RED THREAD / 2016 / 4'56''
The film ‘Red Thread’ is an animated documentary which is about Taiwanese history and identity. ‘Red thread’ is a metaphor throughout the whole film as a direction to guide the main character to find what is his identity. The red thread will only appear when the main character feels lost. The books ‘Orphan of Asia’ and ‘Potsdam Section Chief ’ were written by Wu, Zhuoliu, which inspired me to write the story and think about Taiwanese identity across different eras. I could see Taiwanese were struggling about being a Chinese, Japanese, Mainlander, Islander or pursuing western culture.
I combined real people's voices with narrative story to elaborate real feeling to audience.
Red Thread' was nominated by Largo Film Festival, Feel The Reel International Film Festival, The Monthly Film Festival and was a winner of Story Taiwan Film Competition.
