导演阐述 Director Statement

我出生在山东的一个小镇上,由祖父母抚养长大。他们教会了我一切。许多年后,我离开家去追求我的梦想,从一个城市搬到另一个城市,从中国到美国学习,我总是受到祖父母的鼓励,但因为旅行学习使我离家很远,我很少见到他们。去年,当祖父母的旧公寓要出售时,我意识到我需要找到一种方式来纪念我在那里的时光。

我拍这部电影也想能帮助年轻人解决在青春期遇到的问题。我想让他们知道不必害怕去面对自己和他人,只要敞开心扉,真正在乎你的人会永远爱你,接受你的。我想让年轻人知道,困惑和混乱总是成长过程中自然的一部分,当你努力从茧中脱颖而出,自可以展翅飞翔。

I was born in a small town in Shandong and was raised by my grandparents, who taught me almost everything. Years later, I left home to pursue my dream, moving from one city to another, and even going abroad to study. I used to be encouraged by my grandparents, but traveling and studying abroad pushed me away from home. I barely reunited with them. Last year, when my grandparents’ old house came up for sale, I realized that I needed to find a way to remember those old times.

Meanwhile, I also hope that this short could help young people deal with problems they meet in adolescence. I want them to know that they do not have to be afraid of facing them true selves or others. As long as they are willing to be open up, people who do care about you will always love and accept you. I want them to know that it is okay to feel confused and chaotic while growing up. We are all butterflies destinated to break the cocoon and fly.
