In the night, she is the gorgeous, dignified, acrimonious, cowardly, malicious, self-interested, bashful, unfortunate, amorous, matriarchal and bullheaded Madame Bilan de Linphel. In the day, he is a tailor, who is fast talker. He often goes to the city’s gays strongholds—parks and bathhouses—in search of stories – to meet by chance, flirt, make love, eat. Tailor said he was born to love men.
In Tailor’s eyes, his parents are unfortunate, his childhood, dull and without a sense of security. After growing up, Tailor funded his journey to Guangzhou on the meager income he earned as tailor. He went to realize his dream: to be a highly sought-after
“gigolo.” Indeed, he ran across some men who made their indelible marks—whether it was in Beijing or Guangzhou. He was young at that time.
Madame Fan Qihui has two identities: a talkative tailor, an indolent Bilan de Linphel. With a pop-infused flavor, a dissolute Madame Bilan de Linphel-cum-tailor lament the unseemliness of their dual identity. In the darkness of the stage, the desolate
Bilan de Linphel is the tailor’s elegy incarnate.
Qiu Jiongjiong is an artist who works across two strands: independent film and painting. His films include two short films, Ode to Joy (2008) and A Portrait of Mr. Huang (2009), and five full-length films, The Moon Palace (2007), Madame (2010), My Mother’s Rhapsody (2011), Mr. Zhang Believes (2015), and A New Old Play (2021). From Mr. Zhang Believes to A New Old Play, he has completed the transition from the early narrative-based documentaries to feature films. The family history of Qiu’s hometown, Leshan, Sichuan, and his Sichuan opera family are recurring motifs in his films, and the Sichuan dialects are also important factors in the unique aesthetic and narrative structure of his films. The uniqueness of Qiu’s films is closely related to his identity as a painter. From his script, which is based on a large number of script, to his highly manual production methods, there are always a remaining Painterly style, which provides a physical temperature that is worth gazing at and watching again and again.
Qiu Jiongjiong’s early films have been selected as among the top-ten films in China Independent Film Festival more than once. Mr. Zhang Believes was selected for the 68th Locarno International Film Festival, the 15th MoMA Doc Fortnight, and the 40th Hong Kong International Film Festival. Qiu’s first feature film, A New Old Play won the CNC Cash Award at the Taipei Golden Horse Film Project Promotion, the Hubert Bals Fund Script and Project Development in the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the White Light Post-Production Award at the Hong Kong – Asian Film Financing Forum during the project pitching session. The film was screened at the 74th Locarno International Film Festival and won the Special Jury Prize.
