Girl in the Water / Ragazza nell’acqua

Shi-Rou Huang
Taiwan | 2021 | 7’20 no dialogues

Contemplation of torn walls and scars reminds the heroine of the ups and downs of love. The story is based on my personal experience, recreating the unique perspectives and inner sense of time that women have shown in the process of heartbreak and self-healing. A total of about 1,500 paintings have been drawn frame by frame by watercolors and pastels.
