Chinese title: 暗房

Alone and depressed at home, a young woman ruminates on her past. Emotions ripple through into the present as her husband barges in.

Director’s Statement

With this film, I seek to portray a sort of experience that no camera can capture– a complete lack of light, a room in pitch black. It is my homage to the shadow, the unseen and the unknown.
