Super16mm Film on HD, Sound | English with Chinese subtitles | 20min
A Short-Story on Forgetting and Remembering was shot entirely at night, following the protagonist walking around a city, climbing up roof-tops – watching, observing, witnessing the city and its night-scape; a narrator’s voice tells a story on ‘implanted memories’.
What is real, what imagined, projected or implanted: of a person, a city, a nation. Memory and history embellished, the margin between reality and fiction disappears.
A Short-Story on Forgetting and Remembering refers to the construction of history and identity – of a person, a city or a nation.
Filmed with Super16mm in Taipei in 2007.
It marks the beginning of a trilogy on memory together with Norwegian Woods and Seoul Fiction.
This trilogy is the main feature of Book 1 June Young of The Monograph Project.
A Short-Story on Forgetting and Remembering was produced on the occasion of City Fables, the 5th City on the Move Art Festival, Taipei Brewery, Taipei, 2007
