导演阐述


这是一部十几分钟的短片,在创作之初我只是想表达一种情绪,这种情绪确确实实来自于我自己——在2019年清明的时候心血来潮去了北京的一处公墓,快十年没哭的我不知为何就在那里哭了出来。而从剧本故事来讲,这是个没有强烈冲突的电影,和拍摄初衷一样希望表达情绪,剧本大致有两条线,一条是十分具体的线,小宇外婆去世然后到公墓祭奠,另一条是小宇的生活情感线,从落魄到重燃希望,两条线是交织关系,皆集中于人物身上。从结果来看,两条线都完成得不好,剪辑时我仍然着重于情绪表达,模糊了故事线,希望观者能体会到影片的情绪而非故事本身。

Director’s Statement

This is a short film of more than ten minutes. At the beginning of creation, I just wanted to express a kind of emotion which comes from myself—I went to a cemetery in Beijing on a whim during the Tomb Sweeping Day in 2019, I didn’t cry for nearly a decade, but for some reason I cried there. In terms of the script and the story, this is a film without a strong conflict, and the original intention of the film is to express a kind of an emotion. The script roughly has two lines: one is very specific line in which the grandma dies and Xiaoyu goes to the cemetery memorial, the other is the line of Xiaoyu’s life and emotions, from abasement to rekindling of hope. They are intertwined and both focus on the characters. However, the two lines are not completed well. During editing, I still focused on the emotional expression and blurred the story line, hoping that the audience could feel the emotion of the film rather than the story itself.
