Director's Statement

The short film is a collaboration with dance artist and choreographer Sara Tan, reinterpreting the iconographic photographs of Chinese photographer Ren Hang into the moving image. It is juxtaposed with Hang’s diary entries from My Depression, depicting the fragility of his isolation and anxieties. It is a tribute to the artist who was an enigma, a provocateur, and a true artist of his generation.
