Synopsis

This is an anthropological film about Thai labors in Taiwan. Therefore, the film does not use the traditional way to treat “migrant workers” as one of the social issues; instead, it directly uses anthropological approaches to attach individual/collective memories of self-growth history, from childhood trivia, supernatural beliefs, and folk mythology to diaspora experiences in Taiwan at this moment.

Director Statement

My intention is to make an anthropological film, which enables me not to care too much about the filming methods and practices of documentary. I only seek for what interests me: more intimate and casual ways of shooting, and almost “one-man movie” way of filming. I hope the sensational and personal story can bring the figures of those Thai labors out in a non-exaggerated way.
