Life of the Pilgrim

2017, Sound & BW and Color, HD single-channel film, 33min

This semi-fictional film is in a still-image format. The photographs are from my personal photo collection, including the records of Xinjiang Construction Corps’ production practices in May Day pasture from 1954 to 1964, as well as news photography and stage stills from 1950s to 1980s. In the film, the three generations of sheep are analogies of the migratory life of Christians, and the different dreams with numerous contradictions between generations are the clues of it. I put myself from both the outside and inside angles when narrating the story, provoking the contextual crack between Christians and the world around them.

 

《客旅生活》

2017年,高清有声单通道录像,黑白&彩色,33分钟

这个半虚构的影片以静帧照片为主,照片来源于我个人收藏的从1954年到1964年新疆建设兵团在五一牧场的生产实习的图像记录,以及50-80年代的新闻摄影、舞台剧照等。故事以五一牧场配种养殖的三代羊群来类比基督徒的迁徙生活,并以世代之间矛盾重重的异梦为线索串联,而在故事的叙述中,我也身在第三者和当事人的多重角度来看待基督徒与周遭世界在语境上的裂痕。
