Thus They Spoke(如是说) | 2022
A Film by Yifei "Yash" Zhang
Cast: Hongyu Jiang | Manni Wu
Language: Mandarin| Sichuan Dialect
14 Minutes |4K| US/CN

Originated from my own depression experience, "Thus They Spoke" talks about the complexity of our traumas, with a narrowed scope on the connection and gaze between self and the "others". This film chooses the form of documentary-drama, in particular with the methodology of improvising and non-staged acting, to explore the "truth" within and without the camera.
