Allen Chang and Chen Da-Yu (2000, Taiwan, 20:00)
Base on the true story of a lesbian couple that committed suicide after their school know about their relationship. Winner of the Best Short Film at the Chinese Oscars, The Golden House Film Festival. In a world of no sounds, two girls depend on the dreams of the wing to transport you hearing Beethoven and Chopin’s rain. The wind gives away the memory, beauty of the heartbeat, the happiness of the moisture, and pledge in the mountain until we have the true real self.
(2001, Taiwan, 32:00) Winner of the “Best experimental short” In the 25th Golden Harvest Awards For Short Film and Video. This film integrates the forms of both drama and documentary. While visually, it narrates an engaging love story between two male adolescents, on the soundtrack , it interlaces five radio interviews with gays, lesbians and a worried mother. By this way, the director presents numerous contrasts and dialectics between the two.
Voice of the Sunflower
(2000, Taiwan, 30:00)
This is a story about the ways people communicate with each other. Some use languages, some use words, and others put it into action. Sometimes a kind of “odor” can mean more than just a smell, it’s surely a sensational intuition.
