細膩呈現南部青少年對自己同性情慾的探索,既向內也向外。手法平實,卻暗潮洶湧,對青少年的矛盾觀察入微。

HIDDEN describes the confusion, depression, and helplessness faced by a 13-year-old boy in the process of self-identification and sexuality exploration. Through the life experience and feelings of the stage of adolescence, this film captures the growth process and lifestyle of contemporary Taiwanese teenagers and presents current problems of adolescence within the theme of youth and exploration.

我很珍惜這是我少數看見的,訴說著青少年同志族群,對於性的好奇,而展開書寫的故事。我喜歡故事重重的舉起、輕輕的放下,柔柔地走近觀眾心中。

《迷藏》推薦給對性迷惘困惑好奇的大人小朋友,不孤單,我們都是這樣長大的。
