The Other Is My Skin
Dir: Lo Yi-Shan / TAIWAN / 2021 / 5 min
What would it be like to use sight as a sense of touch? Sight, as a sensation with distance. Touch, as a sensation without distance. They begin to blur the boundaries between each other during a girl's quiet days in the mountains.
Dir: Lo Yi-Shan / TAIWAN / 2018 / 30 min
After one of their best friends vanishes into the wilderness, a boy and a girl honor the last words of their deceased friend, searching for the meaning of their survival. Afterwards is a glimpse into a normal life merged with nightmares and memories. The past melts softly into the present as if the deceased had never left.
Talk and Discussion: Lo Yi-Shan
