The childhood traumas of family breakdown left me a deep scar, which later became the primary cause for my suffering from depression. While undergoing the mental treatment, I finally summoned up the courage to face up to the broken family and the fragile inner self, trying to uncover the truth behind.

導演手持攝影機介入父母的感情隔閡,與母親同行的紀錄有著細膩堅實的感性,鏡頭對準父親卻無法隨意擺動,這些視角變化情感真實,主觀的鏡頭坦率勇敢,也是影片敘事最大的基石,期待可發挖更深沉的探尋。

With the progress of psychotherapy, I look back on my growth history. I figured out that a decade ago, my broken family was due to the quarrels of my parent. Those fuzzy memories and true feelings unexpectedly caused an indelible scare on my body. Therefore, I planned to shoot Home Video to figure out the problem between myself and my family. The meaning is to rewrite my family history and try to resolve the pain of myself and my family. To me, the process of making this piece of work is not only a way of grooming myself but also a part of my treatment.
