华流短片展 CHINESE SHORTS SHOWCASE

短片惊叹号:看不看得见?*
Chinese Shortcuts: Can you see it?

收录5部产自中、港、台、新的短片作品。 《看无》里的uncle看到了什么搞得大家不开心? 《海上男女》中外表和内在的距离有多远? 《木棺》里的那口棺材,父亲看到了什么?儿子又看到了什么? 《大吉》看得见的任务和看不见的纠结之间该如何解决? 《红枣薏米花生》里那碗家传味道的煲粥,又可以让你我看到了什么?

These five short films are variously from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore. What did the uncle in Kua Bo see that made everyone unhappy? What is the difference between a person’s exterior and internal qualities in Shanghai Man Woman? What did the father and son see in Coffin? How does one resolve the tension between a visible duty and an internal struggle in Lucky Draw? And what can you “see” in that bowl of porridge in 3 Generations 3 Days?
