First-time feature filmmaker Maren Hwang delivers a fresh mystery drama, complemented by cinematographer Nagao Nakashima's (The Great Buddha+, Godspeed) stylish, pared-back visuals.

Nine unrelated individuals talk about their connection with a mysterious woman named Xiao Mei. Told in a series of interviews and flashbacks, the characters’ direct-to-camera address brilliantly unsettles narrative certainty and slowly unravels what happened to Xiao Mei. Featuring a voice-over narration by Hsin-Yao Huang (The Great Buddha+, Sydney Film Festival and Taiwan Film Festival 2018).

 

實力派攝影師中島長雄操刀的《小美》,集結了迷幻、懸疑和驚悚元素,並由《大佛普拉斯》導演黃信堯為電影旁白開嗓。以偽紀錄片的形式,透過一段段訪談慢慢勾勒出小美的樣貌。

小美(饒星星 飾)突然消失人間。一個男子帶著攝影機,走訪任何與小美接觸過的人,試圖藉由眾人的回憶、描述與評論,拼湊有關小美的一切線索。各式各樣的受訪者,同時也暗喻著台灣的現代文明。此片入圍了金馬最佳攝影、原創電影音樂和歌曲,也曾受邀於昆士蘭當代美術館播放。

An old fridge and three sensitive women in an old flat, a mysterious sound started to spread across the flat, echoing their inner world. 

一間舊公寓、一台破冰箱、三個瘋婆娘,在颱風過的夜晚,房裏傳出了神秘的噪音,一個魔幻的夜晚就這樣開始了。
