Somewhere Unknown in Indochina

Asio Liu Chihsiung

Taiwan | 2023 | 7 min
Jouer Trailer
This film will be presented during the event La Nuit du court on March 16, 2024 at Concordia University.

Unfolding like a video painting, this cinematic short film transports us to an undefined location in Indochina and explores with visual mastery the lesser-known history of two refugee camps (1977~1988) in the Taiwan Strait. Through three surreal dreams, the story evokes poetic images of abandoned umbrellas and desolate landscapes, silent witnesses of a bygone era.
