Some Notes on The Choice

Author: GU Xue 顾雪 Translator: HU Longbiao 胡龙彪


At the beginning of August, the Chinese Independent Cinema Observer asked me to write about my creative experience. I was a little diffident. I had just finished my first independent work, The Choice (家庭会议,2019). In terms of cinematography, I am still at nursery school. However, two years after the shooting of the film, it has completed its own life cycle, from production to completion, and then to the audience. So I thought maybe I could take this opportunity to take stock.
