A Retelling of the Cowherder and the Weaver in the Age of Migration

Sneak peek of a new film collaboration with sound artist, Xiren Wang and commissioned by Leo Kuelbs Collection for a forthcoming Digital Fairytales Program curated by Leo Kuelbs and Wing Lu with Able Sun. The film is based on the ancient Chinese folktale, Cowherder and Weaver Girl. Here, I reinterpret the tale as a contemporary allegory. The two star-crossed characters, with the help of a flock of magpies, work to deconstruct the wall between land and sky and builds a bridge to unite these two worlds.
