Life is boring, thank God for high heels

Hu Mage

Release year: 2000

Run time: 8 mins

Film type: Documentary


At the end of 2000, I happened to have a DV camera in my hands, so I wanted to shoot something for fun. At that time, I was not in a position to do post-production. I thought, "can we do without post-production? Can we do without post-production and finish a film entirely by shooting itself? So that's what I did, and I called it a "non-edited short film". So the reason for making this short film was very simple: I wanted to make something for fun, and there was a chance, so I did it! I didn't want to say anything, I didn't want to reflect anything!
