Dreaming a better day

Po-Yang Chang - 14'17"



¨ This is not a murder.¨

Yueh-Ming brought an old-fashioned suitcase walking in the mountains. He wore an overcoat, and one of his hands held a clay doll. He was at ease and just looked like any other ordinary person. Liang Liang was in a red suit, and also held a clay doll in her hand. Both of them were walking in the seemingly same path but in different timeline, and the dolls they held looked like a pair. The man and the woman called each other in the mountains, so did the clay dolls. It was getting cold and humid, and their relationship was getting intertwining. Those who seemingly had nothing to do with each other ate each other. This was not a murder, however, the uncutting historical tangle between nation and nation.

It has been four years since my last film was done. Although I haven’t done any films throughout the four years, I did gain and store up some energy and power. The story I wanted to shoot was postponed, and it was worthless that the equipment was put away . The images started to gather in my mind while eating out, and I felt that I could do something. I made my team immediately and went ahead without thinking too much. Every time when I made a film the title came across my mind first, and then the story followed up.

It was not a murder. I have no stand.
