Through a 3D virtual universe simulated by a game engine intertwined with historical pictures, a lost moment of history can be experienced. The story revolves around the memory of a Chinese survivor of Khmer Rouge. This tragedy, which took the lives of 2 million people, continues to reshape our present in virtue of today’s narration.

影像融合歷史檔案和3D動畫,敘述由一位紅色高綿的親歷者展開,隨著畫面的前進和閃爍,口述者的苦難在逃亡視角和情緒化配樂下被重構,導演選擇拋離真實,在模糊記憶和虛構的歷史場景之間穿梭,建造出一個充滿感染力的空間,很有實驗性。

An encounter with a forgotten community in Chinese history was the starting point of this project. Over time, I gradually established an image of French Indochina in the 1970s. It isn’t about judging history through the mixture of 3d and archive, but to provide a space in which the past can seek to become present again.
