Hello to Me in 100 Years

What was Taiwan like 100 years ago? What will it be like 100 years from now? Maybe there will be flying cars, and many things can be done by machines. Maybe we will live under the sea or in space. However, will advanced technology make us happier?

The film incorporates historical audio-visual materials, children’s interviews, and paintings to build a fantasy world of the future. From the microscopic to the macroscopic, from the individual, the society, to the universe, and finally back to the individual to focus on the richness of the spiritual world. No matter how the world and technology change and progress, one thing will not change ─ Life needs each other, so that we won’t be alone.

Femme Rage

“Femme Rage” is a poetic rendering of QTBIPOC femme anger, uncensored. Visceral in its honesty, this film captures raw expressions of rage in response to multiple oppressions. Words from bell hooks and Angela Davis intertwine with imagery of Black and Brown femmes releasing screams from their depths, sharpening their tools, and marching in the streets. The Femme Rage Deity speaks in poetry proclaiming that our rage is ancient, our rage is sacred, and our rage is a tool for transformation
