Release year: 2003

Run time: 2003

Film type: Experimental film


A philosophical image that combines body language and lens language to explore deeply the basis for the existence of various identities of people. The identity of the writer is nihilistic and temporary. Instead, it is those characters, plots, and scenes that constitute his "writer" identity. When he started writing, both the scene and the characters became reality. Li Ning did not want to present pale concepts and images; he arrived with gorgeous self-consolation.
